Registration for Ohio Miles for Meso Now Open!

Posted on Thu Jul 17, 2014 9:15am

Miles for Meso is excited to announce that registration for the 3rd Annual Bruce A. Waite Miles for Meso 5k Run/Walk is now open! The race will take place on Sunday, Sept. 21, 2014 in Ontario, Ohio.

The race will begin at Ontario High School, 467 Shelby Ontario Road, Ontario, Ohio. Race check in time is 1:00 p.m. The 5k Run/Walk will begin at 2:00 p.m. New for 2014 is race chip timing, provided by Ohio Race Day.

The race is organized to honor the life of Bruce A. Waite, an educator at Mansfield Senior from 1959-1989 and an avid runner for over 30 years. Bruce was diagnosed with mesothelioma in 2002 and passed away in 2003. All proceeds from this event will go to Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation.

Last year, this event raised over $10,000 to donate towards mesothelioma research. All registration fees and donations for the race will again benefit mesothelioma.

Registration costs $20 if pre-registered by Sept. 15 and $25 after Sept. 15. The first 200 people registered are guaranteed a long-sleeved, technical Miles for Meso T-shirt with their registration.

Awards will be given to the overall top male/female finishers and to the top three places in the following age groups:
• 13 & under
• 14-19
• 20-29
• 30-39
• 40-49
• 50-59
