We are raising money for Project EdBear - a nonprofit organization who supports the oncology unit at Akron Children's Hospital. We are running in memory of Wilson Patterson who was a patient at Akron for 18 months battling Burkitt's leukemia/lymphoma. Wilson was just 8 years old when he left us, but he lived so much in those short 8 years. He was a Marine brat and spent over half of his life in Japan where he ran 5K's with his mom. He loved everything outdoors - especially hunting and fishing with his Dad, and was hardly ever without some type of camo apparel. ;) Wilson had a huge heart and was always wanting to help others - even when he was sick he collected and donated toys to the oncology unit at Akron. We want to run and raise money in Wilson's honor because that's what Wilson would do.
