Rockin’ on the Run has a goal to raise awareness and research towards pediatric brain cancer. This year’s goal is to raise $25,000 towards those goals. Our event is fun for people of all ages and skill levels. The race is a walk/run 5k in the heart of London, Ohio.
Ashley Winebrenner, Johnda Beathard and Carol Semler founded Rockin’ on the Run in 2010. They created this organization to raise awareness of pediatric brain tumors. Carol’s daughter, Reagyn, was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2005. In 2011, Robin Baier (Violet) and Dode McVey (Nate) became very involved in planning the event because of their children’s diagnoses of brain tumors. Beth Fordyce, Lisa Mittelkamp, Nick Yono, Dodie Winebrenner, and Heather Shingler have also joined the team of organizers to help make Rockin’ on the Run an even bigger success! Rockin’ on the Run holds one major community event a year. This is a 5K walk/run and family day. This year’s event, is scheduled for May 19th, 2018 and will be the 9th year for the event. To date we have donated more than $112,000 to fight brain tumor cancer. Rockin’ on the Run has achieved so much in such a short amount of time and it’s all because of the communities’ involvement. Rockin’ on the Run is a non-profit organization. All proceeds will benefit brain tumor research and awareness.
