EVENT: 2013 Allyson Whitney 5k
EVENT DATE: May 11, 2013
On Saturday, May 11th, our family will be running in the 2nd annual Allyson Whitney Foundation (AWF) 5K. This foundation is especially important to us. Its namesake, Allyson Whitney, was an amazing daughter, sister and friend. The foundation was created based on Allyson's passion to help others in need.
AWF provides financial support to young adults battling cancer. Last year, the race raised over $53,000. Since its inception, AWF has provided 17 young adults battling a rare cancer $29,000 in grants. The Foundation also donated $10,000 to MD Anderson Cancer Center for their research data base to study the rare Small Cell Cervical cancer.
Please help us make Allyson's wish a reality. Help us give young adults with rare cancers a helping hand, voice and HOPE!
