Join Torchbearers for AkRun & Crawl: Brunch on June 9

Torchbearers will host its 12th Annual AkRun event Saturday, June 9 at 9 a.m. Returning to a morning timeslot, this year’s event, AkRun & Crawl: Brunch will also feature a new yoga option. In addition, we’ll continue our 5K race along the scenic Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail through the Merriman Valley. A brunch will follow in the Valley Bar District.

As the organization’s primary fundraiser, all proceeds from this event benefit Torchbearers.

“Your contribution helps us achieve our mission of enhancing Greater Akron by investing in the development, connection and engagement of our membership comprised of evolving leaders with a passion to impact our community. We are constantly grateful for the community’s support and will continue to look for opportunities to use these funds to make a positive impact on Greater Akron,” says Torchbearers President Hillary Stewart.

Early registration pricing is $40 for both the run or yoga and brunch or $25 for brunch only. Prices will increase after May 25. For more information or to sign up online today, visit
