Event Description

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

Keris Kares presents to you a Royal Run: The Virtual Edition. We want to bring the running community back together, virtually for now. We miss seeing all of your smiling faces in real life and until that can safely happen again, we want to see your photos and watch your miles accumulate. We are bringing to you a virtual 5K to get out and stay fit while social distancing.

When a child is diagnosed with cancer, everything STOPS. A family’s whole life changes just like that and it does not go back to normal. Bills and stress are at an all-time high and help from others is critical. One in 285 children in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer by the time they are 20 years old. Childhood cancer research and treatments are vastly and consistently underfunded. Keris was a vibrant and faithful child who bravely battled a rare form of pediatric brain cancer called Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) from the age of 4 until her transition at the age of 6.  She made a lasting impression on those that knew her. The name Keris means love and charity.  Our driving motivation is to pay it forward with love and charity and bless other hurting families the same way the community blessed Keris. Proceeds from this event go directly to Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation. Your registration helps us KARE for families, kids, and teachers.  THANK YOU FOR YOUR PARTICIPATION!
