We’re back to where it all began! Join weSPARK Cancer Support Center for our 9th annual Run/Walk at Lake Balboa on Sunday, January 27th! Grab your friends and family and get moving for a good cause. Whether you’re an avid runner or a self-proclaimed couch potato – there is something for everyone!

Each runner will receive a t-shirt, a finisher medal and a pancake breakfast to celebrate your hard work.
