EVENT: SuperHero 5k, Merecedes Marathon Weekend, Birmingham, AL
DATE: Feb 10, 2018
To honor the late Brad Booth as our real-life Superhero, and to bring awareness to his legacy, we are running for Red Mountain Grace - a non-profit that Brad poured his life, soul and spirt into.
Red Mountain Grace currently serves approximately 70 families annually by providing 12 hospitality apartments to patients and families traveling to Birmingham, AL for medical care. While the impact they are making is great, the need is even greater. Every night, there still remains a 30-40 person waiting list for lodging. We ask that you help keep Brad's passion alive, by supporting us with a donation as we run toward his legacy of eliminating this need in Birmingham.
Read Brad's Story...
In 2010, Brad Booth was diagnosed with desmoplastic small round cell tumor. The Booth's decided on MD Anderson in Houston for treatment and would be there a minimum of three months, if everything went smoothly. They began to look at apartments to rent and almost signed a $3,000 per month lease, until he met a friend in Helena who was able to connect him with the Amschwand Sarcoma Cancer Foundation. They were able to give him an apartment during his time in Houston.
When he returned from Houston, Brad made it his mission to not only provide somewhere to stay for those coming to Birmingham for medical treatment, but provide a sense of community and hope for the patient and their loved ones. Brad joined the Red Mountain Grace team in its early days and worked tirelessly to support this ministry while serving as an ambassador of Christ to all of our patients, supporters, and the entire Red Mountain Grace team - even though he continued to battle with cancer.
On September 29, 2017, 7 years into the battle, Brad Booth closed his eyes for the final time and won his fight with cancer. He walked right through the celestial gates and heard the words, “well done, good and faithful servant.”
