5th Annual FARF 5K Superhero Run

The FARF 5k is a Superhero themed run/walk that raises money for the Fanconi Anemia Research Fund in honor of Blake Robison from Maple Valley and brothers Isaac and Avery Graham-Anderson from Renton. Blake, Isaac, and Avery were all born with Fanconi Anemia. We hope that by raising money all three of them can live long and healthy lives. These boys love Superheroes and dressing up, so dust off your cape and mask and help us run to fight Fanconi Anemia! 


The FARF 5K Superhero Run takes place on Labor Day at Lake Wilderness Park in Maple Valley, WA. Competitive runners, fun runners, walkers, junior athletes, families and strollers are all invited. Costumes are encouraged. Enjoy the FREE Kids 1K and other fun family activities such as free face painting, balloon animals, photo booth and more!
