Inaugural Run and Walk!

Jason Wilhelm was a professional drummer pursuing a degree in music business when, in May 2003 at the age of 20, he was diagnosed with a rare form of liver cancer.
​The disease outlasted five years of aggressive treatments and surgeries that gradually weakened his body beyond the ability to recover.

Despite losing his college education, the strength to drum, his health, and ultimately his life to cancer in May 2008, Jason accepted the hard truths of his life without allowing them to harden his heart.​
The Jason Christopher Wilhelm Scholarship Fund was established in honor of his amazing courage and character.

A 501(c)(3)non-profit  corporation founded in 2008 to provide scholarships, give assistance to cancer patients, and promote cancer awareness and research.
