About This Activity

Wishes for Weston
Just days before Weston turned 10 months old, his father found a lump in his thigh. This quickly turned into the family’s worst nightmare, as it was confirmed that this was a high grade and aggressive cancerous tumor with a few affected lymph nodes in his groin. Physicians from some of the top ranked oncology groups in the U.S. have been unable to specifically identify the type of cancer cells that Weston’s body is producing. Pathology indicates that it is likely a sarcoma, but that it might be a cell that has never been documented before. Three weeks after finding the tumor, Weston began chemotherapy. Weston is a happy and resilient little guy with an incredible twinkle in his eyes. We ask that you share Weston's story in an effort to rally prayer support and that you do so with a sense of hope for his future. Words cannot express our gratitude.

The 5K/1Mile Walk/Kids Fun is being held to help raise funds for Weston's continuing fight against cancer and to help offset the bills the Rock Family has encumbered while getting Weston the medical treatments he needs.  So come out and help a wonderful family, a special boy and be proactive in your community!!!
