We’re thrilled and honored to have 2020 Joey's Wings 5k & Kids Obstacle Challenge logo designed by Boyang Twin Brothers Art, 14-Year-Old International and National Award Winning Artists Max Boyang & Louis Boyang! Their artwork have been exhibited in fine art galleries across the country. Max and Louis have had five solo exhibitions in the past three years. In 2016, they donated the sales of their artwork to Joey’s Wings. You can see their works at http://www.boyangtwins.com/index.html
In the middle of May 2019, five year old Charlie had a brain tumor. He underwent surgery to remove the 5cm tumor located in the posterior fossa region of the brain and thankfully, the entire tumor was removed. Charlie was diagnosed with medulloblastoma, a malignant type of brain tumor. For the first ~1.5 months after surgery, he developed Posterior Fossa Syndrome. Charlie was unable to talk, walk, swallow, or communicate for over a month after his surgery. Charlie was hospitalized for a total of almost 5 months during which time he received 3 rounds of the initial chemotherapy regimen followed by a fourth round of high dose chemotherapy. The side effects of the high dose chemo required an autologous stem cell transplant which occurred in early September. Charlie's post-treatment MRI scan of the brain and spine in October was clean! Charlie is home now and doing well. He continues to receive outpatient physical and occupational therapy and he is looking forward to returning to school soon!

Both strollers and dogs are welcome! We have made the course more stroller-friendly this year, so no worries if it rains beforehand! If you run with your dog, please make sure he/she is well behaved, stays on a leash, gets cleaned up after and doesn't trip anyone while on the course :)
