About This Activity

Initially, our "Friends Helping Friends" Race was set up to support our friend and neighbor, Andrea Volm, as she courageously battled Lymphoma. Thankfully, Andrea's body responded amazingly well to her treatment, and at this point in time, we are grateful that she is doing well and cancer-free.  We would still love to support and celebrate Andrea at our race on April 9th.

However, we would also love to support another friend with the funds raised at this event.  That friend is Dominic Liples, a 2nd grader at Kutz Elementary, who it was just discovered has an aggressive brain tumor.  Dominic did undergo surgery last week, but now faces intensive radiation and chemotherapy.  

Please join us on April 9th to support both Dominic and Andrea.
