All proceeds from this event will directly impact some of the most vulnerable individuals in our community:
The American Anti-Cancer Institute (AACI) conducts educational and preventative cancer programs and makes them available to the general public. They also promote alternative cancer treatments, therapies, supplements, and protocols that are proven to help cancer patients.
The FARM Youth Outreach provides help to displaced families throughout King, Snohomish, and Skagit counties and is the only organization in the area to provide holiday events specifically for the homeless children of Washington State.
Please join us as we Run For Their Lives!
While pledges are not mandatory, participants who are willing to go the extra mile are encouraged to raise money through sponsors who can donate per kilometer or by lump sum. Those ready for an even greater fundraising challenge are encouraged to join AACI founder and CEO, Bob Wright, on his 2K Team. Sponsorship forms and further information on the 2K challenge will be emailed to participants upon registration.
In Memory of Bruce Karr:
Bruce Karr passed away on July 23, 2010 after living a life dedicated to helping children during times of need. His dream of creating a wonderland for children to play and receive gifts during the holidays came to fruition during the years prior to his death. His efforts, along with the efforts of hundreds of volunteers, have touched the lives of thousands of children.
Bruce believed that small gestures made the largest impact in others' lives and even after he received the cancer diagnosis, he continued his work. He did not see his illness as a death sentence; he saw a life sentence that allowed him to create happiness in so many lives. Bruce's philosophy to "live like you were dying" made the difference in the lives of many.
