The Sara-thoners are a group of five South Burlington High School students running a relay in the KeyBank VT City Marathon for their friend Sara, who was diagnosed with Leukemia in February. We wanted to do something special to show Sara how much she means to us, and how much love and support she has behind her. Sara's amazing courage and spirit has inspired us to hold a 5K event to benefit her, as well as others who are battleing this disease, in hopes of bringing more awareness to the cause. The Sara-thoners are organizing the "5K Walk/Run/Bike for Sara" on May 19th at Dorset Park to raise money for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. It will be an event for the whole family with music, food, face-painting, Ben&Jerry's ice cream, raffle prizes, and more!
Sara is more than just amazing friend--she is a true hero in our community, and she deserves to be shown the never-ending love and support that she has behind her.
