DTRF 5K RUN RAISED OVER $14000 - Desmoid Tumor Research Foundation


August 16, 2009

Dana and I felt the need to do something to make a difference and we joined efforts to do the First Annual 5K Run/Walk.  We decided on making this a tradition and doing it once a year.  Both of us work a tremendous amount and undergo treatment so this was not easy, but it was just so important to us that we made it happen!!!  We had an incredible amount of participation from local business, family, friends, coworkers, and the community. We were interviewed live by a local news channel. We heard tons of compliments about the organization of the 5K Run/Walk and how it was the best…This was sooooo nice to hear as it was only our first one!  Together we raised about $7,000 and with the anonymous donor that matched it was a total of about $14,000!!! It was such a fantastic feeling for the both of us that is still difficult to explain, but WOW!!!
