Child cancer benefit to race through Cherokee

Written by 

The annual Chief’s Challenge one-mile run and walk benefit for victims of childhood cancer will take place at 2 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 1, before the Cherokee Indian Fair parade. The event will take participants through downtown to the Cherokee Immediate Care center adjacent to the Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort parking lot.

Registration takes place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. the day of the event, at the Cherokee Phoenix Theatre parking lot or online. Registration is $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 years and younger. Proceeds will go to the Madison Hornbuckle Children’s Cancer Foundation. 

The first 300 participants will receive a swag bag with T-shirts, water bottles and more, donated by local businesses and tribal programs. The day also features a host of activities for participants before the event, including a magic show, games, and art activities.

The Madison Hornbuckle Children’s Cancer Foundation is a non-profit foundation that provides financial support to the families of children with cancer. Information about the foundation can be found online at nc-cherokee.com/madison-hornbuckle-foundation.
