One of my childhood friends Susan lost her mother to pancreatic cancer a few years ago. Pancreatic cancer is one of the most aggressive and hard to treat forms of cancer. Since the loss of her mother, Susan has worked extremely hard to organize fundraising events to raise awareness as well as funds to support pancreatic cancer research.
An annual event in memory of her mom, the Mari J Meyer Pancreatic Cancer Trail Run for Hope takes place Saturday, September 13th. This 5k untimed trail run and walk starts at 9am and is on the East Kentwood High School cross country course.
I'm happy Boxed GR will be helping to sponsor this year's event and I hope you all will consider signing up for a fun event that supports very important cancer research.
