Trophies will be awarded to the top three overall male and female finishers, and medals will be awarded to the top three male and female in each age group. All participating children will receive a ribbon. Plaques will be presented to the top three fundraising individuals and teams.
“We are excited to host the first annual run/walk to remember our dear Sarah and raise awareness and funds for our foundation,” said Sarah’s Joy Foundation President Eric Iraheta. “We want to provide patients with cancer and their families the same joy that Sarah had. Too many families make their lives a hospital bed, and we want them to get out and enjoy a day at a spa or ride a roller coaster with their kids. Having cancer does not mean death, and people shouldn’t mourn someone while they are alive. Sarah certainly lived her life to the fullest, and we want to share that memory with other patients and their families.”
