EVENT: 2015 IMT Des Moines Marathon
November 2008 Kenny Konz our beloved son, husband, father, uncle, Papa, brother and friend was diagnosed with kidney cancer. He fought a courageous battle for 5 months. On April 21, 2009 Kenny lost his battle. At this time we created Team Kenny to keep his and our other loved one's memories alive, to support those that are still battling cancer, and celebrate those that have battled and won.
Team Kenny is dedicating our training and race participation to help the American Cancer society save lives. Every mile we conquer will be more meaninful because we are doing this for something greater - for a cause we truly believe in. We are hoping you will support us in our efforts.
Most of us have been touched by cancer in some way. This is our way of fighting back against a disease that has taken too much. When we cross that finish line, we will be doing it for you and all the people we know who have battled cancer. Please support Team Kenny with a donation so that together, with the American Cancer Society, we can help save lives and create a world with less cancer.
