“I think that there really isn’t a more important cause than our kids, and to be able to help be any part of finding a cure for kids cancer is everything,” Kristin Hoefert, an event organizer said.

If you didn’t get a chance to make it to the race, organizers say you can still donate to Alex’s Lemonade Stand at their website.
