North Dakota small towns race for Courage Against Cancer

Zeeland to Hauge, North Dakota -- The eighth annual Courage Against Cancer 5K /Half-Marathon road race will once again bring runners from all over to walk, jog, run or bike from Zeeland, ND (population 85) to Hauge, ND (population 67) on Saturday, August 18, 2018.

Like most road races, Courage Against Cancer has a committee of passionate individuals supporting a great cause, but unlike most, this race takes place in a community most North Dakota individuals have never visited!  Located southeast of Bismarck, ND, the population of both towns is around 150 people and race organizers would love to see the race participants outnumber the population of both towns.

“This race actually started with a few friends who wanted to do something a little crazy after battling a cancer diagnosis,” said Denise, race chair. “After going through cancer treatment and surviving, friends decided to walk from Zeeland to Hauge to celebrate survivorship and just because they could.”

The neighbors rallied around the walkers and soon other individuals were joining and supporting them. “We thought, if people want to walk/run/bike with us, we should turn it into a road race and raise money to help other local individuals battling cancer,” said original racer Joyce. “Courage Against Cancer participants are sure to feel the support and generosity of small town North Dakota during this special day.”

Race day includes a half marathon starting at the Zeeland school at 8:30 a.m., a 5K run/walk starting at the Hauge Amvets at 9:30 a.m., freewill lunch, memorial balloon release, door prizes and more!  Proceeds from the race will go to the Bismarck Cancer Center Foundation.

Hunting Dakota with Roosevelt

Hunting Dakota with Roosevelt has three goals: to honor the state’s military; to incorporate the North American Model of Conservation on the lands where Theodore Roosevelt hunted; and to build awareness and raise funding for the fight against cancer. Landowners in western ND have donated land for the hunts on Saturday and Sunday, and dog handlers are donating their time and dogs to lead the hunting parties.             

This event offers a select group the opportunity to step back into history and hunt the very land that Theodore Roosevelt hunted. The game being hunted will be ring-neck pheasant and sharp-tail grouse on the very prairie in western North Dakota that Roosevelt loved and cherished.

Select military personnel from North Dakota who have been deployed or mobilized for one tour of duty are the invited guests of sponsoring companies and individuals who will be hunting “fair chase” upland game on private lands of ranchers and farmers of North Dakota.

For more information on this event visit:
