A walk was held in Mission Hills, Kansas on Saturday morning, September 1, 2012. The fundraising event, benefiting the Desmoid Tumor Research Foundation, took place despite the dreary conditions provided by the remnants of hurricane Isaac as it slowly made its way across the Midwest. Sophie’s father, Reed Hickok, lost his battle with an abdominal desmoid on April 1, 2010. His courageous battle inspired many of his friends, family, classmates and co-workers to gather and walk in his memory and offer contributions to help support research to the DTRF. Sophie and her friends helped to raise over $3000 in this inaugural effort and have hopes of making it a yearly event … Rain or Shine!
