Those who knew Chris personally knew he was an amazingly funny guy and amazingly, we watched him smile and joke even through chemo.  Chris was unfaillingly generous.  He gave better than he got and wouldn't have had it any other way.  

In 2014, his niece Brooke decided to organize a 5K race to save him from a rare and aggressive type of cancer. He declined the help, saying he had already been so lucky.  Together, he and Brooke decided to raise money for the families of needy cancer patients. The mission of our organization is to help provide for the basic needs of these families.  We pay for necessities like car insurance, rent, and utilities.

We lost Chris this last year, and what a loss it was.  His memorial was standing room only. He left behind an enormous crowd of dear friends and the grateful recipients of his lifelong habit of generosity.

The families of cancer patients deal with the devastation of a cancer diagnosis, the difficulties of treatment, and the possible loss of a loved one. 

We want to give these families breathing room.  A space to cope and relax and to enjoy good times with the people they love.

Run, walk or dawdle your way to the finish line! Help us support families in need.

Donate $22 or more and come run or walk through the beautiful Trinity River Audubon Center in Dallas.

Get a FREE t-shirt, and after the race, hang out and enjoy an awesome FREE breakfast after the run!

This is a friendly community event and we want as many people there as possible.

We will have awesome handmade medals for the top finishers and fundraisers.
