Team Tina is a group that focuses its efforts on raising money and giving support to Tina Webb, the 31-year-old single mother, who is battling pancreatic cancer.

Webb, who works in the adult probation office, was diagnosed with the cancer, which has spread to her bones, in July 2014.

“She is in the process of completing 20 IV treatments,” her mother, Janet Wagner said. “She works periodically when she is not having chemo.”

The race starts at 2 p.m. at the parking lot of Liebert and follows the same course as the Memorial Day parade route through Woodland Cemetery.

Registration starts at 1 p.m. and is $25 that day. Runners can sign up on Tri-State beforehand for a fee of $20.

The first 5K for Team Tina was in October 2014. Coal Grove Giovanni’s has also had two fundraisers.
