Online registration is now open for the 13th annual Daniel’s Race, a 5K run/walk at Churchville-Chili Middle School Saturday, April 14.

Participants can register or donate by clicking the Register link on www.daniels5k.com. The registration fee is $25, and the first 100 pre-registrants will receive a free Daniel’s Race t-shirt. Registration packets and race bibs can be picked up at the Rochester Running Company on Mt. Hope Avenue.

The race is in memory of Daniel Myslivecek, who lost his two-year plus battle with Stage IV Metastatic Melanoma. The community united as Daniel ran the first 5K in March 2006 and passed away that June. Daniel’s dream was to serve others and his legacy has raised melanoma awareness.

The annual 5K is held in memory of Daniel Myslivecek who was a  student at Churchville-Chili High School.

This year’s proceeds will be donated to a local charity that helps families with children who have been diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses.

Last year, Daniel’s Race completed a three-year, $25,000 pledge to sponsor an alcove in Daniel’s name at the Golisano Children’s Hospital and helped grant a local child’s dream through Make-A-Wish Western NY.

Myslivecek, who is a teacher and track coach at Gates Chili said, “Historically Gates Chili and Churchville-Chili sports teams have been very supportive of Daniel’s Race and the good work we are doing. Cancer touches all of our lives. We can make a difference and when we do it collectively, and celebrate the lives of those affected, it makes the good work we do fun.”
