The 7th Annual Fit Family 5K Run and Walk Race begins on the beautiful campus of Walsh University and winds through the roads of the surrounding North Canton community. This fast road race promotes health and wellness for all ages in our community. All proceeds will benefit the Walsh University Doctor of Physical Therapy Students by providing them with educational scholarships.
