September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and the best way to honor young victims battling the deadly disease is by participating in the Candlelighters 5K & One Mile "Race for our Kids."
This year's event will be Sept. 8 at Exploration Park located at 9275 So. Buffalo Dr.
Now in its 22nd year, the run benefits the nonprofit Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Nevada, which raises funds to support children and their families affected by cancer.
In addition to the race, there will be food and refreshments, raffle prizes including a Disneyland trip for four, children's play and art areas.
For information and to register for the race, visit www.candlelightersnv.org or call 702-737-1919.
The online registration deadline is Sept. 4, and mailed registrations must be postmarked by Sept. 3.
