BENEFITING PATIENTS, FAMILIES, AND RESEARCH
The Kylie Rose's Run is an Ohio non-profit (Tax ID # 82-5305754)
Kylie Roses Run was inspired by Kylie and her family during her fight against cancer. She and her family put on an annual 5K & Family Fun Run that benefits Akron Children's Hospital's Oncology Department. Kylie also decided to make Kylie's Bags of Love, which are bags stuffed with fun items for the children in the hospital.
Kylie Rose’s Run is celebrating its 5th Annual 5K event. Kylie Rose Jacobs, at the age of five, was diagnosed with cancer on January 6, 2015 and has since been treated at Akron Children’s Hospital. This year’s race proceeds will directly support the patients and their families and will help fund pediatric cancer research
Please note that this race has raised in excess of $72,000 that has been donated to Akron Children's Hospital!
The event will take place in the Copley High School football stadium. The 5K will start and end in the stadium. There will be family/kid activities held in the stadium during all runs. We had so many families and kids participate in the Family Fun Run last year! It was so fun and we learned a lot. We will be having a Competitive 1 Mile Run as well as a Citizens 1 Mile. You may decide the day of the event which run your family wants to participate in.
