The third annual BENefit Mile will now be a VIRTUAL race! The race window will be between Friday, August 7 and Saturday, August 15 (Ben's birthday!). Feel free to run the same course down Buchanan Street in Plainfield, or run a mile at a place more convenient for you! Please send your mile result to Zach Toothman at firstname.lastname@example.org between 8/7 and 8/15 to be part of the compiled results!
This event features a unique opportunity for seasoned runners to tackle a fast, shorter race than the typical road run, and will also appeal to those just starting out with running (walkers are also encouraged to participate)!
The BENefit Mile will raise funds for the Benjamin Andrew Harmon Legacy Fund, which will in turn donate proceeds to the Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases at Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at St. Vincent in memory of Ben Harmon. Ben was a Hendricks County resident and runner and who passed away in July of 2018 of Ewing’s Sarcoma, a rare bone cancer. Ben’s optimism and genuine positivity towards everyone, as well as his fight against his cancer was incredibly inspiring. This race will raise funds to help the Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases support other patients and families in their fight against cancer as well.
Shirt Guarantee: 7/31
