The 3rd annual of the Michael Hoefflin Foundation Walk for Kids with Cancer was held on March 23, 2013 at COC Cougar Stadium to help raise awareness and funds to families affected by children’s cancer.

The event also had their first 5k run as medals were awarded to the top three runners of each age group that participated.

The Michael Hoefflin Foundation was created in 1995 with the goal to help with emotional and financial support to the families going through the struggle of their children with cancer.

“We hope through research their will be treatments when a child is diagnosed with cancer that very quickly they can be cured and go on and live a natural life without all the horrible side-effects,” said Chris Hoefflin founder of the Michael Hoefflin Foundation.
