Horace Greeley Athlete Walkathon
Sponsored by the Sports Boosters
In memory of Gardner Marks – Class of 2008
WALK THE WALK!
Help raise awareness about Leukemia, Lymphoma, and Brain and Spinal Cord Tumors affecting children and young adults.
We will be stepping out on Sunday, November 8nd from 11a – 1p in memory of Gardner Marks, Class of 2008. Our community lost Gardner at age 23 from complications from Leukemia just two short years from his diagnosis. Cancer is non-discriminating. Gardner was a Greeley Athlete just like you.
The walkathon is the perfect platform to raise both awareness and money in the fight against Pediatric/Adolescent Cancers, Spinal and brain tumors.
This year we will be making contributions to organizations that are right in our own backyard…
Team G/The Gardner Marks Foundation is an organization devoted to raising money toward grants for cutting edge cancer/stem cell research, and Making Headway, an organization that provides essential care and support for the child, family and peers helping them through emotional and physical difficult times outside of the medical world. Both organizations have a common vision…to bring support and lifesaving treatments to kids battling cancer, as well as spine and brain tumors.
