"Everyday Heroes, fighting Fanconi Anemia"

Join us next year!

5th Annual FARF 5K Superhero Run, September 2019

The FARF 5k is a superhero themed 5K run/walk that starts at the Renton Community Center and travels along the paved Cedar River Trail before looping back to the Community Center. The course is flat, fast and 100% traffic free.  Competitive runners, fun runners, walkers, junior athletes, families and strollers are all invited. Costumes encouraged. Enjoy fun family activities such as free face painting, balloon animals, photo booth and more!


The FARF 5k 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, who 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!

FAQ's

What is Fanconi Anemia?

Fanconi anemia is an inherited disease that can lead to bone marrow failure and cancer. Though considered primarily a blood disease, FA may affect all systems of the body. It is a complex and chronic disorder that is psychologically demanding. FA is also a cancer-prone disease, affecting patients decades earlier than the general population.
