Limitless Cancer Fight

Limitless Bootcamp is sponsoring and organizing the very first Limitless Cancer Fight challenge run!! All proceeds go to Marshfield Clinic Cancer Research!! Sign up now to guarantee a spot!
When: October 22, 2017
Heats start at 9am-Pick your own heat!
Where: Iverson Park Stevens Point, WI
What: Limitless Cancer Fight will be a challenge run with a little bit of running and a few obstacles! Challenging but attainable by anyone that wants to give it a try! Obstacles are a secret, so is distance. But we ensure its shorter than a 5k!

Why: Everyone has or will be hit hard by Cancer at some point in their lives. Whether its themselves, their family or a close friend, the evil C word has become ever more known. In our Limitless family its hit many people, but most recently, franchise owner Nathan Zuelke in Marshfield and Wisconsin Rapids lost his wife to Cancer last December. Can we make a difference? Our hope is our donations help in the research department to find some random cure, or some way to prevent this horrendous disease.

How: Sign up now at limitlessbcmarshfield.zenplanner.com In the menu, select sign up and pick your heat! $25/Runner and that will include a t-shirt and wrist band,
PLEASE MAKE SURE you pre register by October 6 to get your t-shirt and wrist band at the even!
