Annual 'Fall Stampede' raises awareness for childhood cancer

- The annual Fall Stampede is coming up.

The event, which is entering into its sixth year since its 2012 inception, will take place on September 9 at Curtis Hixon Park. It’s held every September in order to raise awareness of childhood cancer and raise funds for the Children’s Cancer Center.

Sponsored by Chick-fil-A, the 6th Annual Fall Stampede will include a 5k run, one-mile family fun run (or walk), a mascot race, photo opportunities with the Chick-fil-A cows, and finally a post-race party in the “Family Fun Zone” which participants can enjoy Chick-fil-A food, games and prizes.

For those who cannot physically attend the stampede, there is a new addition to this year's event: a virtual race.

The event has grown from 800 runners to more than 1,5000, and has raised about $307,500 I net proceeds within the last five years.
