Check out my quick 4-minute interview posted below with Maddie Spielman about the event!
This is a great event with both a four and one mile - walk/run. You can walk a mile right? :-)
It begins and ends at the Stefanie Spielman Comprehensive Breast Center on 1145 Olentangy River Road.

If you're a cancer survivor, or the parent or guardian of a survivor younger than 18, you can nominate your Champion.
Things to consider:
- How has your Champion, without expectation of reward, helped, comforted, uplifted and supported you during your battle with cancer?
- How has your Champion made a lasting impression in your life?
- How has your Champion made sacrifices in his or her life in an effort to help you?
The award recipients are chosen by a nationwide selection committee annually, and Champion Award recipients are recognized at the Step Up for Stefanie's Champions Walk/Run annual event.
When nominating, share specific examples or stories that illustrate WHY YOUR Champion is deserving of this award.

"The ones who steadfastly stand beside us, and inspire us to strength. The ones who will not retreat from fear, and inspire us to courage. The ones who sacrifice all for us, and inspire us to love. The ones who will not let go, and inspire us to hold on. These are Stefanie's Champions."
