American Cancer Society hosts annual Purple Run

Hampshire County

The American Cancer Society is holding their annual Purple Run Sunday morning.

The annual Purple Run started in 2012, and has raised more than $11,000 for the American Cancer Society.

All proceeds from this year’s run will go directly to the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life of Hampshire County in June.

This will be the 6th year the event is being held.

Sunday’s event will feature a walk, a 5k, and a 10k run. 

This year’s goal is to have 500 runners and walkers take part.

Registration for the event started around 9 a.m., and even if you aren’t walking or running a craft fair with more than 30 vendors will be at the event till 1 p.m.
