About the event

Welcome To The First Beacon Stride For Life Charity Event!

Our Story: On March 28, 2023, I lost my mother “Missy” Maureen Manzi/Tyburczy to lung cancer. She battled cancer for less than a year where she fought it hard but unfortunately the cancer was too strong for her. She was a life-long resident of Beacon where she served the community the best she could. She worked at Bob’s Corner Store where she would serve the best bacon egg & cheese sandwiches and whenever you saw her, she would make sure you’d leave with a smile. She was also a bus driver for the City of Beacon School District where she loved being around the kids and making them laugh.
 
It's the difficult experience of losing my mother that sparked the idea of creating an event that helps support families and friends that have gone and/or are going through these heart wrenching times. The process is difficult for many families and I decided to put together a charity event that takes place in Beacon to help raise money in support of fighting cancer. I want to bring the community together and raise awareness of these battles we are tired of hearing about.   Details: As a participant you get to choose between a 5k run/walk, a 12-mile bicycle ride, or a 20-mile bicycle ride to help Fight cancer. There are pre-determined routes for all three events that lead each participant through Beacon. Start and finish will be at Memorial Park. All the pre-determined routes can be found on Strava and can be found below. Each of the routes will have markers at all of the turns, as well as a volunteer to help guide you to help keep you moving without hesitation! Following your great efforts there will be refreshments and music. Hope you can make it out and help bring some great energy in the support of fighting cancer! Remember if you sign up for one of the events you must obey all traffic laws. Thank you and hope to see you there!  Registration will be opening up February 2, 2024!
