Event Information
About this event
The 2nd MBBF 5K Run/Walk and Kids Fun Run will benefit the Mary Beth Benison Foundation, Inc. a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. The primary purpose of the foundation is to provide financial assistance to ALS patients and their families. In addition we provide assistance to people with cancer and other serious illnesses and we partner with and support charities close to Mary Beth's heart.

What is special about this event is that the MBB Foundation honors the memory of Mary Beth and another individual within the ALS community. This year we are having the race in memory of Maryellen Standring, who passed away from ALS in 2014.

Proceeds raised from this event will go to MBB Foundation to help reduce the financial burden for patients and their families. Grants typically provide assistance for things such as the payment for medical equipment or caregiver services not covered by insurance, payment of a household bill (electric, heat (gas/oil), rent/mortgage), car payment or to contributing towards a dream vacation for a patient with a terminal illness.
