Each year the Run Like A Boss 5k benefits an individual and a family whose lives have been impacted by cancer.

2023 Benefit Recipient is Karson Collier. Son of Ms. Keysha Johnson and Mr. Jarrett Collier, natives of Athens, AL.

Karson Collier, age 8, was diagnosed September 2022, at the tender age 7 with Rhabdomyosarcoma. Rhabdomyosarcoma is a type of sarcoma. Sarcoma is cancer of soft tissue (such as muscle), connective tissue (such as tendon or cartilage), or bone. Rhabdomyosarcoma usually begins in muscles that are attached to bones and that help the body move, but it may begin in many places in the body.

What is a Virtual Race?
A virtual race is a race that can be run (or walked) from any location you choose. You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill at the gym or on the track (or even at another race). You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself.
Running or walking these virtual races on your own, or with friends! And your shirt will be shipped directly to you.
