About This Activity

Joey's Wings Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit charity, was established in 2014 in the memory of Joey, a 10-year-old boy who loved to run, but was taken from us by childhood cancer on Nov. 26, 2014. Our mission is to support cutting edge research that focuses on kidney cancers affecting children and young adults, and to provide support, advocacy, and education for parents. 100% of all donations made will be used towards research and treatment options, parents support and advocacy for developing less toxic therapies to treat kidney cancer among children and young adults.

This is the 2nd annual Joey's 5K run/walk. Proceeds go to the international patient registry of translocation renal cell carcinoma and the wholegeno sequencing of 23 tumors of this cancer.
