5k 2020 graphics-02


Sam's Fans 5K was one of the very first things we did in memory of Samantha McCarthy. It continues to be one of our most favorite events. Proceeds from the race will go towards our continued goal of promoting and enhancing music and art therapy programs for seriously ill children and their families. Thanks to your support we are able to fund music and art therapists in five Ohio hospitals.


Goal Sam’s Fans 5k 2020: $40,000 & 500 participants


Please help us by sharing with friends and family and doing your own fundraising on behalf of Sam’s Fans!

We look forward to seeing you on August 16, 2020!

Time Until Race...



In addition to running, you can create your own fundraiser for Sam's Fans! Last year our fundraisers helped us fundraise $10,000 more! Can we beat last year and raise $15,000?!

Here's How It Works

Step 1

Register and customize your personal fundraising page by adding photos, a video, and story text about why you're so passionate about the cause.

Step 2

Email your friends and family telling them about your fundraiser and share your link on social media asking everyone to donate. Be bold, it's for a good cause.

Step 3

Fundraise like crazy to raise as much money as possible. Your personal page collects your fundraising totals together in one place; your overall impact.
