Chase 4 Gold 5K Race
On August 8, 2018 Chase was diagnosed with stage 3 non-hodgkins lymphoma at the young age of 10 years old. Chase fought with nearly six grueling months of treatment. During the family’s fight, their friends, family and community came together to raise money for Chase with a 5K called “The Race for Chase”. The love and support that Chase’s family received during this time fueled their battle and helped them stay focused on what was important – staying focused on Chase and his fight.
We are beyond happy to say that Chase is now in remission!
As they were going through their cancer journey, he and his family decided that once he was through to the other side, they wanted to find a way to give back for all the love and support that they received during this most difficult me.
We are excited to announce that The Race For Chase has been re-named to The Chase 4 Gold!
The Chase 4 Gold 5K will now be an annual event, with proceeds going towards Childhood Cancer Research, and providing resources and support to other fighter-families who are not only fighting Childhood Cancer, but also the financial strain that this terrible disease has placed on them. The impact of family, friends, community, and complete strangers with compassionate hearts cannot be underesti mated, and means the world to these young fighters and their families. So each year, The Chase 4 Gold plans to highlight a young fighter – To allow their community of friends, family, and all who care about the impact of Childhood Cancer -to rally around them and show them the same LOVE and SUPPORT that Chase’s family had experienced in 2018 with our original “Race For Chase” event!
The young fighter that we are highlighting for our 2019 Chase 4 Gold 5k is Toby G! ~ At just 12 years old, Toby has battled ALL (Acute Lymphoblas c Leukemia) for most of his childhood. Sadly, Toby is now facing his third fight.
Come join Chase, Toby’s family, and so many other caring participants in our community, and participate in the Chase 4 Gold 5K to help to support Toby, and so many other Childhood Cancer fighters!
