We Loved Volunteering at the 5K & 1 Mile Race for a Superhero!

We just got done sponsoring the 24th Annual 5K & 1 Mile Race for a Superhero, and loved every minute of it! The event took place on September 13th and helped to raise funds for Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Nevada. We have enjoyed sponsoring the event for the past few years, and love being able to watch the event grow each year!

The race was hosted by Chet Bucanan, and was tons of fun! Almost everyone came out and dressed up as their favorite superhero to help support the Candlelighters Kids and families. We cannot wait for next year’s event to help this great cause even more!

The Candlelighters foundation was started to help support children who’ve been diagnosed with cancer. They focus on helping children from birth to 21 years of age who are living or being treated in Nevada. The Foundation was founded by two families who had children that were being treated for cancer. The hope of the foundation is to help families in these situations find strength, comfort, and knowledge by coming together in a time of need.

What started with a dedicated group of volunteers has grown into a strong force of full-time employees who help 100 families each month, and as much as 600 families throughout the year. There is no fee or membership that is required to receive comfort and help from the Candlelighters. All families in the area who are dealing with childhood cancer are eligible for the services that they offer.
