Second Annual Four-Leaf Clover Run benefits local high school cancer fighter

Published: June 4, 2017 12:00 AM

The Second Annual Four-Leaf Clover Run and Family Fun Run, sponsored by Four-Leaf Clover, Inc., will again benefit local charity partners, Project Ed Bear and The Stephen A. Comunale, Jr. Family Cancer Foundation. In addition to these two amazing organizations, this year will be even more special as we've adopted Cameron Fortney, a 17-year old Tallmadge High School senior, as its special fighter.

Cameron was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia last fall as he was beginning his senior year of high school. Fortunately, his cancer is treatable, and Cameron has a good prognosis. He is currently receiving treatment five days a week after school. As part of Cameron's cancer battle, his family is faced with the mounting medical expenses of his treatment. In an effort to help Cameron and his family through this battle, he will receive one-third of all the proceeds from this year's event.

The four-mile run/walk on June 10, starting at St. Vincent Church, will travel through some of the famous brick road West Hill neighborhoods of Akron, then through historic Glendale Cemetery, and wind back up the challenging Glendale Hill. The run will finish on the 50-yard line of John Cistone Field at St. Vincent-St. Mary High School.

Register to run/walk the course or be a part of the Fun Run; start a high school team and fundraising page; start a fundraising page for a special fighter or hero; become a volunteer; donate today; or become a corporate sponsor. All the information is available at www.fourleafcloverrun.org.
