About

Join us for this regional event benefitting the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation while bringing awareness to this insidious, silent killer. Bile duct cancer, with 20,000 new cases a year, is increasing in children and adults 4% per year and no one knows why. Often labeled a silent disease because most times the signs and symptoms go unnoticed until the cancer is in the advanced stage. Michelle was taken in the prime of her life following a heroic five-month battle leaving a new husband and 2 kids. Help us fund research to find the cause, detection, and treatments which work. Can’t wait to see you at the family-friendly event hosted by Michelle’s family and friends in Taylor, Texas. Let’s get individuals, families, and friends all out to the starting line on race day for a great time celebrating life and family.

Michelle called us all "peeps". It's Texas! It's August!. We know it will be HOT! As Michelle said, "Train Hard or Go Home" so let's get 'er done! We look forward to the challenge and celebration with you!  This is a chip-timed 5k Fun Run/Walk and Kids’ Dash (Kids' of all ages!).
