Adventist Health Ukiah Valley (AHUV) will host the Annual Colors for Cancer Fun Run and Walk on Sunday, September 17, 2017, raising funds for the Focus on Healing program. This colorful run/walk is perfect for the entire family. Participants are encouraged to wear white, as color stations are strategically placed throughout the rail trail, dousing each participant with the many colors of cancer, honoring the strength and courage of cancer survivors.

After you cross the finish line enjoy music, food and activities in the Rural Health Center court yard. A tour of the newly renovated Cancer Treatment and Infusion Center will also follow the race.
