What is ReCharged? 

ReCharged is a FREE 12-week health and wellness program designed for people who are currently in cancer treatment or have become de-conditioned or chronically fatigued from battling cancer in the past five years. With the guidance and support from CETI (Cancer Exercise Training Institute), our personal trainers can help you regain muscle mass, increase flexibility and improve cardiovascular endurance and daily functional abilities.  Learn More About ReCharged 


All proceeds from the 5k race will go towards the ReCharged program so we can help more people in our valley go through this program and help them regain their health back! You can register as a team of 10 and save $5 on each person's registration fee or register individually for $30! Register Now!

What is the virtual 5k?

This is new. And it’s going to be Awesome!

Anyone can participate in the 5k anytime between Sept. 5th and Sept. 12th. The majority of us will be running on September 12th but if that day does not work for you try accomplishing your 5k anytime that week! 

We may all be running separately, but we will celebrate our accomplishments together. We will be all over social media letting you know when we have finished our race and when our supporters have accomplished theirs! 

We know this is different than our usual 5k, but this is an opportunity for all of us to connect on the traditional date of our ReCharged 5K to support those that have gone through our ReCharged cancer wellness program and to offer this opportunity to others in our community that need to take back their health! 

What comes with my registration?

  • Free downloadable Bib that you can personalize any way you like!
  • A Race Shirt! 
  • An opportunity to win any of our prizes (best 5k with a K9, best path design, best view, wackiest dressed)
  • Once you run, you can submit your time for a customized Participant’s Certificate.
