Blackburn Chasing the Cure was founded in honor of Megan Blackburn’s mom, who is a breast cancer survivor and in memory of Megan’s aunt. The foundation was also created in memory of Corey Hoehn, who lost his life at the young age of 15 to Ewing’s sarcoma. The Blackburn Chasing the Cure Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit that strives to ease the burdens of families during difficult times, so they can focus solely on their loved ones who are battling breast cancer or childhood cancer.
Honda Marysville has orchestrated the successful Run4Kids which benefits the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation (PBTF) for more than 14 years. This run has historically brought together 550+ individuals of all ages to honor “Stars” who lost their battle to this deadliest form of childhood cancer and Stars who are undergoing treatment or living with the side effects of a brain tumor. Annually, Honda Marysville supports the PBTF through the Ride For Kids and this very own 5K.
Why this week? September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Together, while apart, we are keeping awareness alive for these causes that will affect more than 300,000 individuals in 2020 while honoring those close to us who have been in this fight.
We honor the strength of patients and caregivers. We hope that you will too.
