“Endure for the Cure” 

By Rachel Gobep

The sixth annual Endure for the Cure event will be held at Youngstown State University’s Stambaugh Stadium on April 22. 


The two-mile obstacle course race raises funds for Flashes of Hope, a non-profit organization that donates funds to cancer research and takes portraits of children with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.


The event is held by the Student Recreation Advisory Committee and will consist of obstacles such as tire flipping, sled pushing and more. 


The price of a ticket is 25 dollars for college and high school students, 30 dollars for faculty members and alumni, and 35 dollars for members of the community. 


There is also a team option, which costs 60 dollars for 3 people and 95 dollars for 5 people. 


Non-YSU students, faculty and staff must pay a five-dollar parking fee.  


Registration begins at 9:00 a.m. and the first race will start at 10:00 a.m.
