This race was started as a way to give back to the pediatric oncology community that we were a part of while our favorite superhero, Keith, was battling brain cancer. He loved superheroes and identified with their determination and endurance. The children that face the uphill battle with cancer face the impossible and often do so with grit and fortitude that is uncharacteristic for their small frames.

During each year's race, we would like to honor those special children who have battled cancer by creating a "Trail of Heroes". This trail, along the race route, will show pictures of those children as a way to remind race participants why this event is so important. This trail is for any child who fought or is currently fighting cancer, regardless of their outcome.

One of our favorite aspects of the race is to honor those small children, to remind us of why we do this, and to celebrate those that are still heroing up!!

If you or someone you know would like to have their child highlighted along the trail of heroes, please submit their info here!
