Why I Participate
I participate to honor my friend Brooke English. She may not have lost her life to cancer, but she fought very hard for those who fought cancer. This year I fundraise and walk in honor of her and her compassion to help save those fighting cancer.
I’ve joined the fight against pediatric cancer and blood disorders by signing up for the KC Cares for Kids Walk. It’s going to take all of us to put an end to childhood cancer and blood disorders, so please support me by making a donation or by joining a team.
