The philanthropic mission of Chemo Noir is to host and inspire wine-centric and lifestyle events that raise money to provide financial support to the families, friends and fighters in their battle with Cancer.
This 1 mile run & tasting event is the classiest 1 Mile fun run event for an incredible local cause! The run/walk will begin near the Jacksonville Beach Pier on a course that will be ½ mile out and ½ mile back. The ½ mile turn will be dedicated to one of the very first Chemo Noir supporters and friends, Tara Newton Richardson, and will be a cheering section and water station known as Tara’s Turn.
At the finish line we will recognize our partners, sponsors and supporters. At the conclusion of the 1 Mile Run there will be a festive tasting event in the Casa Marina courtyard.
