At Sole Burner, Every Mile is Meaningful

For the past 36 years, people from all over Wisconsin have gathered in Appleton for the Sole Burner 5K to support the American Cancer Society. This unique event offers participants of all skill levels the opportunity to participate in a 5K walk or run through beautiful Downtown Appleton to raise funds and help save lives from all cancers. Kids will enjoy our pre-race activities and participating in either the 1K or 1 Mile Kids Fun Run. We invite you to join us at City Park on May 12, 2018 to honor and remember those whose lives have been touched by cancer.
