Event Description

The Will Haney Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in North Alabama.  We would like to continue the virtual run format in addition to our 5K in-person race and up the mileage and encourage all runners & walkers to embark on a 34 mile journey with us over the "course" of 34 days!!  After 19 months and 24 cycles of chemotherapy Will was 34 years old when cancer took his life.  Even through very aggressive chemotherapy treatments, Will continued to enjoy life on his farm, never complaining and amazingly, still living life to the fullest.  Will was an avid runner and was always encouraging others to get out and be active.  Not only did Will encourage others to exercise but Will’s heart was so caring and compassionate that he was in school to become a nurse.  He was in his last year of nursing school when he was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma, an extremely rare cancer found most often in children.  Will’s moto was “In It to Win It.”  The Will Haney Foundation hopes that no matter your exercise level you will help us remember our friend, brother and son while running or walking to remember the 34 years we had Will with us.  All proceeds from the race will go to support other families fighting the cancer battle, to help further cancer research, and provide scholarships to graduating Seniors going into the nursing field.  WILLPOWER!!
