Run4Zeke Run4HLH; raising money to support Zeke Carter
Organized by: Elisha Boeskool

June 23, 2016
EVENT DATE Oct 23, 2016
Elisha Boeskool and Erin Borger will be running both the Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon as well as the Metro Health Grand Rapids Marathon in October, Marcia Kent will be walking in the Metro Health Grand Rapids Half marathon, and Steve Sabatino will be running his first 5K on July 16th to raise money for Zeke's family as well as awareness to this rare disease.
Zeke is 2 years old and he was diagnosed with HLH in March. His treatment has included chemotherapy and steroids. This summer he will be undergoing a bone marrow transplant. This fundraiser will go to Zeke's family to offset the costs they are incurring as his treatment continues. In addition to hospital bills, there will be cafeteria food as his mom will be at the hospital with him, co pays for prescription medication, as well as traveling expenses and possibly an apartment as this is an out of town transplant.
There will also be expenses as they are preparing to bring Zeke home. The flooring in their family's home will have to be replaced throughout the house, as it may be harboring microbes that would be harmful to an immune suppressed person. He will also be having many follow up appointments, some of which are a three hour drive from home.
Please consider supporting us as we run #run4zeke #run4HLH #2marathons1month, #1st5k and helping this young family out.
