Run for Dov 5K – Costume Fun Run at Sugar House Park

FullMoon-Run-1024x416What an amazing and inspiring story that I wanted to share with you. Ginger, a cancer survivor and friend of Dov recently reached out to me about this event, here are some of her words:

“I have a dear friend who is a triathlete turned cancer patient who is facing the end of his battle with stage 4 colorectal cancer. He’s 39, has 2 small children and a very inspiring story as he’s fought a terminal diagnosis for 6 years – running marathons (like Ragnar) while on chemotherapy because he wanted to run for others who could not.

He was recently told that there are no more options for him and to help his family we are hosting a 5k Full Moon Fun run at Sugarhouse Park on June 12th and are working to spread the word to other runners.”

What an amazing story and a great cause to get behind. Here’s more information about the event:
