Get set for a fun day of running/walking with a Christmas flair. The Fifth Annual Candy Cane 5K is returning to the Daytona Beach area – virtually this year!

The Candy Cane 5K is Not Just a Race – It’s a Tradition – one that we want to keep alive even with what 2020 has thrown us! This year, we are encouraging everyone to dress up in your craziest Christmas-themed attire, gather with family or friends, and get out there and run/walk (wherever you choose) for a day of fun on Saturday, Dec. 19.

The event is a memorial fundraiser to continue the work of the late Chuck Strasser. Chuck was a much-loved member of the Daytona Beach-area community who passed away Jan. 1, 2015, after a valiant battle with cancer. The Strassers hope to leave a lasting legacy honoring Chuck’s vision to help children not just in Volusia County but all over the world. Funds raised will support local adoptions including efforts to place orphans in adoptive homes through Tomoka Christian Church’s Bringing Children Home ministry. This Christmas, give a child a forever home!
