Blue Ribbon Run

Race for the Cure

The Blue Ribbon Run is an annual event raising money and awareness for a cure for colorectal cancer, while helping North Carolina families affected by this disease.

The Blue Ribbon Run is unique in its afternoon start time with a reception following at Dockside. Transportation is provided to and from the race site. The band Lunar Tide creates an atmosphere for celebration of life and hope to find a cure.

The t-shirt designs are a local favorite and blue hydrangeas are sold with all profits benefiting the goal of saving lives.
