About This Activity

Welcome to the 3nd Annual Hearts of Iron 5K!
At the 1993 Espy’s Jimmy Valvano passionately declared “don’t give up….don’t ever give up.” Jim Tuck was a long time coach & teacher in the Marcus Whitman community. He never gave up. He had a heart of iron. Challenge yourself on March 21st—don’t give up on yourself as you push up the hills, don’t give up on the fight against cancer.
Last year, we donated $2500 to the V foundation, $1000 to the Roswell Cancer Park, and $500 to the Ontario Yates Hospice
