I would just like to thank you all for coming out to our first annual Steve’s 5k to Run Down Cancer event this past Saturday! Your support made this first event a success! Because of you, we will be donating over $4800 to the Wilmot Cancer Institute in just this first year!!! It has been an honor to have you be a part of it all, and we hope to see you again next year on Saturday, June 18th at Mendon Ponds Park!!
The first annual Steve’s 5k to Run Down Cancer event will take place at Mendon Ponds Park on Saturday, June 20th 2015. The event is being held in honor of my brother, Steve Rettke, a champion, a friend, and an avid runner who passed after a 5 year long battle with cancer in February 2014, on his 30th birthday. The event will raise money for the Wilmot Cancer Institute as well as raise awareness for Desmoplastic Small Round Cell Tumor, a rare and lethal sarcoma that can surface in both children and young adults.
We are asking you to join our cause in any way you can, whether it be running the race, volunteering your time, or becoming a sponsor–you can help us to help others. You can make a difference!
