We are excited to kick off our 4th year as we look ahead to some great fall races. Take a run with us and learn about the Cheetahs and how we partner with the Emilio Nares Foundation. After the run we will be answering questions and serving up our famous post-run omelet bar. You don't want to miss this!

Directions: From the North: Take I-5 to Garnet Ave exit. Head south on exit which turns into Mission Bay Dr. At the lights before re-entering the freeway, take the right-hand turn into Mission Bay Park/De Anza Cove and follow the road to the last parking lot and park next to the restrooms.

CCR is a proud supporter of Richard's heart & sole run for Emilio

Click on the photo for more information on ENF co-founder Richard Nares's incredible 1700 mile run from Seattle to San Diego in support of the Emilio Nares foundation. He will stop at 9 children's hospitals along his route. Each pediatric children's hospital will be receiving Emilio's Loving Tabs shirts as a special gift. Emilio's Loving Tabs are shirts with snaps on the shoulder and sleeve to facilitate access to chemotherapy for children with cancer. The breathable shirts provide a sense of normalcy so children don’t have to take off or lift a shirt to receive treatment. A game changer for kids, parents, and hospital staff! 

Check back for events and activities in support of Richard!

 Meet Bianca, CCR's Patient Ambassador!

Meet Bianca, CCR's Patient Ambassador!

CCR is pleased to introduce our newest Cheetah - Patient Ambassador Bianca Rollbusch! Diagnosed with Acute Lymphblastic Leukemia (ALL) in April of 2008, Bianca underwent two years of chemotherapy treatments. Through it all, doctors were impressed by her endurance and courage.

With her long days of treatment behind her, Bianca has become an avid runner, joining her school's cross country team and going on early morning runs with her dad. She already has an impressive and growing collection of 5K medals.

We are pleased that Bianca and her dad will be joining us for our fall season and training for her first half marathon.  Bianca had a fantastic run at the Rock n Roll San Diego Half Marathon. She will completed the second leg of the Half Marathon Relay and the Cheetahs were honored to cross the finished with her.

Welcome to the Cheetahs Bianca!
