Run for CHMF in the FirstEnergy Akron Marathon or Half Marathon

Registration is now open for the 2022 FirstEnergy Akron Marathon, Half Marathon, and Team Relay taking place on September 24, and the Carson Higgins Memorial Foundation is proud to be a Blue Line Charity Partner!

All runners are encouraged to fundraise for a local charity. This year, participants can choose the Carson Higgins Memorial Foundation as their charity of choice, make their own personal donation to the charity, and ask their friends and family to donate.

Once registered for the marathon, half marathon or team relay, the FirstEnergy Akron Marathon registration system will automatically create your fundraising page that you can personalize and share.

The top three charities raising more than $5,000 on the Race Roster fundraising platform will also receive a donation from the Akron Marathon.

Donations will help us continue to enhance the lives of children and families facing cancer and other life challenges by funding programs such as Augment Therapy; pediatric cancer research; and therapeutic, medical, and educational opportunities.
