Run for a Cause - Renaissance Race Against Cancer

6 th Annual Renaissance Race Against Cancer Saturday – June 11 th , 2016 Renaissance Race Against Cancer first started back in 2011. Two Renaissance employees, Dodie Berard and Cynde Krug, who lost their battles with cancer in late 2010, inspired the race. As more and more of our co-workers, friends, and neighbors are diagnosed with this disease, the annual race provides an ongoing opportunity for all participants to honor and support friends and loved ones also affected.
