September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and it’s a perfect time to show support to the many families affected by childhood cancer. The CureSearch Ultimate Tri-CURE-athon on September 24, 2016, in Whitehouse, Ohio is a hike, bike, OR, Fun-walk and festival benefiting CureSearch for Children’s Cancer. You can choose whether you would like to hike 12 miles in Oak Openings, or bike 21 miles on the South Fork of the Wabash Cannonball trail, or do a 1-mile fun-walk in Whitehouse Village Park. It’s not a triathlon. You choose one of three event types. Or, if you aren’t up to hiking, biking or fun-walking then you can opt to simply come to the park that day to enjoy the multitude of other fun happenings for this event. Check-out the Human Foosball and Human Hungry, Hungry Hippos games, Gaga Ball, Carnival games, a comedy and magic show, music, enjoy dinner grilled by the Whitehouse Fire Company and admire the artwork of our local young artists donated for the Create Away Cancer Art Auction. There will be something for everyone. It’s a chance to have a fun-time, fight childhood cancer, and honor the many families affected by childhood cancer.

You can even choose to participate in the Tri-CURE-athon Car Show or the Motorcycle Ride to Tri-CURE-athon. Special flyers are attached with information on these options: Tri-Cure Motorcycle Run and Tri Cure Car Show
Please note the CureSearch Ultimate Tri-CURE-athon is part of the CureSearch Ultimate Hike Program. It’s a Create Your Own Adventure-Ultimate Hike. So when you register online, don’t be alarmed or worried you completed registration incorrectly when you see you have a CureSearch Ultimate Hike fundraising page even if you select to participate in the bike or fun-walk rather than the hike event. You can register online to participate in just dinner and park activities too and are still encouraged to set-up an Ultimate Hike fundraising page.
You are able to register on-site the day of the event rather than online but if you would like a Tri-CURE-athon t-shirt and the choice of chicken barbecue rather than hot dogs or hamburger, then you will need to register online no later than September 9, 2016.
