Jared was ten years old when he passed away on October 5, 1998 after a long courageous battle with leukemia. Jayne, Jared's mom, passed away on December 17, 2006 after a difficult fight with Inflammatory Breast Cancer. We miss them both deeply.
This event is committed to remembering Jared and Jayne and all they both stood for and what is important in life...love, faith, strength and courage. Proceeds from this race go to Children's Mercy Cancer Center, The Dream Factory, The Leukemia & Lymphoma, Heart of America Bone Marrow Donor Registry, Ronald McDonald House Charities, the Solace House, and the Jared Coones Memorial Foundation.
