Bub's Run 5K graphic with Loveland Family.

Join us for the 4th Annual Bub's Run in honor of Kelson Loveland to be held at North Cobb Christian School on Saturday, May 4 at 7:30 a.m. We’re thankful for the support of so many of our NCCS staff, students and families as we honor and celebrate Kelson's life and support the Loveland family (big sister Emma Sue, class of 2026). We would love for you to sign up this year to run, walk or trot!

Beneficiary is CURE Childhood Cancer: CURE Childhood Cancer - A Pediatric Cancer Charity.

A truly dynamic organization, CURE provides countless support services to children and families enduring impossibly difficult diagnoses, while also funding targeted research to someday put an end to the monster that is childhood cancer. As they have done – and continue to do – for many families like ours, CURE served as a solid foundation at the time of Kelson’s diagnosis, offering free counseling services, providing warm and delicious meals on the Aflac floor and in clinic, and a plethora of family programming to help navigate the murky, uncharted waters of a childhood cancer diagnosis.

The Loveland family has been part of NCCS since 2013, when Emma Sue came as a kindergartener. Her brother Kelson earned his wings on May 5, 2020, at the age of 8, following a lifetime of medical complications and challenges. Bub's Run exists to honor and remember Kelson, to raise funds for organizations that enriched his life, and to create joy through inclusion for exceptional individuals and the families who love them. 


Bub's Run finish

Bub's Run includes a chipped 5K, 1-mile Fun Run/Walk, and Tot Trot (4 and under)! This event is open to athletes of all abilities, offering “Bub’s Buddies” to those who need a bit of extra help on the course. Buddies may push a stroller or wheelchair, guide someone with a visual impairment, offer support to a friend with a cognitive disability, and more. STUDENTS: You can sign up to volunteer as a buddy (and earn service hours)!

The beautiful race course winds through campus, up Old 41, around the campus of NorthStar Church, and finishes back on Jacob Dennis Field. We can't wait to see you there!
