Annual Event

  • In light of budget and staffing constraints, the CSB will no longer be coordinating its annual Tim Harmon Recovery Run 5K race. This popular event has raised over $185,000 to support research and efforts to prevent Hepatitis C, the disease that took the life of Tim Harmon, a much loved and respected member of the CSB staff. The CSB wishes to thank everyone who helped make this event such a great success!
