5th Annual Nebraska Football Uplifting Athletes Road Race
Sunday, July 16 is the 5th Annual Nebraska Football Uplifting Athletes Road Race.
Every year it's a special event, but this year's race carries extra meaning. This is the first year without Sam Foltz, who was such a big part of last year's event when a picture of him running with one boy went viral.
The 5k starts and finishes just outside of Memorial Stadium.
Proceeds from the race will benefit the Nebraska chapter of Uplifting Athletes and their efforts to fight pediatric brain cancer.
