We Miss You So Much

Can’t  make it to the Run? You can send your donations to the address listed in contact us


Thank you for your generous donations and participation in previous  Runs for Rita. Together we raised over $40,000 in the last 8 years and have been able to bless a number of people battling leukemia/cancer with generous donations.


The Run for Rita is about sharing memories, supporting each other as family and friends ,and replacing grief with hope.  We know that it is called the Run , but we also know that there are many who cannot either run or walk the marked distance.  Please don't let that be a barrier to your participating in the charity that the Run supports.  All are welcome--family, friends, adults, kids, runners, walkers, standers, and sitters.


This website will be updated with current information as quickly as I have it.

Never forget to tell the people that are really important to you, how really important they are”
