A cancer diagnosis is always a dire prospect, but more so when the patient is a child. The Fabulous Faith’s Foundation is a local non-profit with the goal of funding cancer research in the hopes of ending pediatric cancer. The all-volunteer 501(c)(3) organization also helps support the families of pediatric cancer patients and cancer facilities and works to raise awareness of childhood cancers.  The foundation was named in honor of precious Faith Rose Lautzenheiser who was lost to osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer, when she was only ten.

One of their major fundraisers, the 5th annual Fabulous Faith 5K, took place in Mansfield on Saturday September 14 and the competitive street race, which began at Vernon Newsom Stadium on East Broad, was only part of the fun. There was also the first annual Fabulous Faith Pet Parade, plenty of family-friendly pre-race activities, and a touching dove release, at the end of the parade, honoring Faith Rose and all children affected by cancer.

A live DJ was on hand. Rival Cheer entertained the crowd, joined by Star Wars characters and Disney princesses, and medals were awarded in individual categories, as well as team trophies for largest team and best team spirit and a pet parade champion. 450 runners participated in this year’s race and a whopping $43,000 was raised to help with the goal of ending childhood cancer.
