Thank you participants & donors for a great event!

We raised $2,245 at this event with more donations still coming in. That brings our three year total to $10,505.

Cancer has touched most if not all of our lives in some way. We all have friends and family members that have battled this terrible disease. In times of darkness we look to lights of hope like those we see at MD Anderson - Orlando.

We Miss You Jeannie!
This race is dedicated to the memory of Jeannie M. Watson. Jeannie bravely fought brain cancer for more than five years but finally succommed to the disease on January 4th of this year. You could always identify Jeannie by her big smile and happy demeanor. Jeannie is survived by two children, John and Sarah, and her husband, Roger. Roger helped found the Barefoot Fun Run which evolved to this race.

Start a Team

MD Anderson - Orlando is on the cutting edge of research and treatment for cancer. Their facilities all around the country are home to world class doctors and support staff who deliver outstanding care. Patients are treated with kindness and respect by everyone from volunteers to technicians to nurses and doctors.

TravelCountry chose MD Anderson - Orlando as the recipient of the funds raised by our Ring the Bell Trail Run. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to MD Anderson Cancer Center Orlando.

Including an Exclusive Barefoot/Minimalist Running Division

Barefoot running is the general term that applies to running without shoes or with minimal footwear. While a few elite runners and outdoor enthusiasts have adapted their feet to true barefoot running, the introduction of minimalist footwear like Vibram Fivefingers have allowed the rest of us to enjoy the benefits of running barefoot while reducing the risk of injury from puncture and sharp objects.

Who is

TravelCountry is a family operated outdoor store located in Altamonte Springs, FL. They have been providing high quality gear to campers, hikers, trail runners, paddlers, skiers and climbers since 1981. TravelCountry has been a major advocate of barefoot running and fitness since the book, Born to Run, was published. Many TravelCountry team members are barefoot proponents, happily advising customers on the correct walking and running style for barefoot shoes. Supporting MD Anderson - Orlando was a natural fit since one of their associates had a family member who was treated at MD Anderson Cancer Center Orlando.
