Pirate & Princess Fun Run 2018

March 30, 2018 10:04 by Kelly

Pirates and Princesses came together for the annual Fun Run! This is the second year O2B Kids partnered with Joey’s Wings 5k at Westside Park to raise awareness and funds for their cause.

Joey’s Wings is a non-profit charity that supports childhood cancer research, while providing support, advocacy, and education for parents. The charity was created in memory of Joey Xu, who passed away on Nov. 26, 2014 from childhood cancer.

Throughout the run, pirates and princesses had to endure various obstacle courses. The obstacles represent the many challenges that children with cancer have to overcome during treatment, like chemo and radiation. 

With the help of runners (and walkers), $11,000 was raised and will go directly towards pediatric cancer research. 

First, second, and third place winners of their age group.
