Come Run ‘The Varnick’ TODAY!

Today is the day! IF you haven’t registered yet, there is still time! Come on down and join in! Registration starts as early as 6:30am at Union University! More info below – Click on the link…

John Varnick was a Husband, Father, Friend and Warrior who inspired a community with his tenacious spirit and joyous heart while fighting cancer. The original run was planned within a 36 hour period to show our support for John in his fight and his dream to run his first half marathon. Highly successful and moving, John went on to complete another half at St Jude while undergoing chemo treatments in which he became a beacon of encouragement to the kids facing their own battles showing them you never give up and to embrace every day fully!
In February of 2016, we lost our brother but we will continue to honor him and tell his story to encourage others.
Along with the half marathon, we will also have a 1-mile fun run and a 5k for participants! Medals will be awarded to all finishers. NO placements will be given. It was his wish to have all runners cross the finish line with the focus being the journey and encouraging others! All proceeds from the event will go to The Foundation, and will help families who have been or are affected by cancer.
