Sharing the personal stories of those in the midst of their fight is an important part of the awards ceremony. While we recognize the athletic accomplishments of our top runners, we also spend time presenting Keeping the Faith awards to the special people for whom Head for the Cure exists.
The struggles and triumphs of our Keeping the Faith award recipients are even more poignant when shared with everyone race day as we pay tribute to what they have survived and what lies ahead for them.
At each 5K event, we pay tribute to five extraordinary individuals, selected from the nominations submitted by their loved ones.
