Beyond the Rainbow 5K
Making the fight against cancer a little easier
Through the generous donations of community members, The Beyond the Rainbow Fund (Click Here for info) is able to provide financial assistance and support to patients in need at Exeter Hospital’s Center for Cancer Care.
This fund has provided patients with immediate prescription assistance, subsidized rent, utility and fuel bills; purchased groceries; and assisted with additional needs that may become unmanageable for individuals or their families during cancer treatment. This fund also provides patients with wellness/fitness programs and integrative therapies, such as massage, that further assists in improving their quality of life as they focus on healing and recovery.
The LOCO Team supports the Beyond The Rainbow Fund. The race will donate up to $1,500 in matched contributions from runners in the race who donate.
Please consider making a donation (Click Here to Donate online) and/or fundraising using a paper pledge form(Pledge Form) to support our neighbors who may be facing one of their greatest challenges: a cancer diagnosis.
to support local cancer patients.
Thank you for your support in helping to make a difference in the daily lives of local cancer patients.
About the 5K Race:

The 5K starts the same time as the Half Marathon. You wil run or walk the same course as the Half Marathon route up to mile 2.5. At that point 5K participants will go right and half marathoners will continue straight.
The 5K will then go up a short steep hill (sorry about that) but then you are heading back to town and can almost see the finish.
The finish downtown is simply special, the whole downtown is blocked off just for you so run willy nilly down the center of the street and enjoy the terrific finish.
