Since its inception in 2009, this event has raised over $1,200,000 to help cancer research and end this terrible disease. The event always takes place in the fall and is held in either September or October during an Ohio State football game. The day starts out with a 5K Run/Walk and then the festivities begin afterwards. There are live auctions, silent auctions, 50/50, live entertainment, Ohio State cheerleaders and the OSU game on the big screen! Then at the end of the day, there's always a drawing for two Buckeye cruise for cancer tickets. There's always something for everyone of all ages! As Traci Lauth the President and founder always attests, "Together we will win!", and we certainly do with the amazing community that we have, no one is ever alone in their battle to conquer cancer!
