Road to Recovery – a free service provided the take survivors to and from appointments.
Hope Lodge – a free place to stay for survivors and their families during treatment
Free Wigs – provided by the American Cancer Society and our local cancer center
24/7/365 Hotline – a great resource for survivors, family members and caregivers where they can have questions answered and information provided to help them through this time
Registration for the race begins at 8:00 a.m. with the race starting promptly at 9:30 a.m. The course for this race will start at the fire hall, take us through the Warren State Hospital Grounds, through the town of North Warren and end up back at the North Warren Fire Hall.
