This signature event of FCN has become a premier 5K Run/Walk event in the Des Moines, Iowa area. Our race entrants join us year after year because this event is fun and emotionally moving. It is a family friendly event, including activities for children, great food and beverage AND the best part of all—several of our grant recipients and their families join us to share their stories. It is a day filled with fun, support and a true sense of community.

We are so happy to announce that the Blood Sweat & Beers event will be LIVE again this year on Saturday, October 1st starting at 10:00 am in Downtown Des Moines. And for those who cannot join us, we will again be offering the “VIRTUAL RUN” so you can do it on your own time from anywhere in the world!

Your participation in this event will be helping patients and their families with the “financial collateral damage” they face in the wake of a blood and/or pediatric cancer diagnosis.  Let’s pull together like we always do and really make a huge impact for those who need us!

Also, all LIVE and VIRTUAL participants who sign up for the event will receive a stylish metal mug guaranteed to keep your favorite beverage hot or cold … everyone will want one of these!
