CANDY! Just the word elicits a smile. Whether you are 5 or 95, surely you have your favorite kind and sweet memories of it, too. Brussels sprouts? Nah. Asparagus? Don’t think so… but mention candy and you could certainly spend hours talking about popular lollipops to cherished chocolate bars!

There was — and is — something exciting about going to the candy store and looking at all the great confectionery delights. We combine those memories and all that excitement in our family-centered event in support of the Fetal Health Foundation.

The Great Candy Run is an event with memorable experiences. Participants and spectators alike will enjoy the fun and fast 5K course designed with walkers and runners in mind, a family festival featuring games, activity stations, amazing face painting, great refreshments, giveaways and much, much more! !
