Meet Nicholas DeLuca: This Year's Honorary Race Starter

Nicholas was honored previously at 2015 Collins Dixon BYK 5K when we has 11 years old.

Young Nicholas was first diagnosed with brain and spinal tumors at the age of 3 and since then he has undergone 4 separate chemotherapy protocols along with a clinical trial chemo drug. This young warrior has endured 11 surgeries with several extended stays within hospitals as well as MRI's lasting over 2 hours every 3 months since his fight began around 14 years ago.

Nicholas' latest treatment protocol was 6 consecutive weeks of radiation therapy which he finished Mid-June of last year.

This young man's life doesn't center around his affliction however as he has many interesting hobbies and enduring characteristics. Aside from perfecting new tricks on his scooter, he also enjoys mountain biking, video games, and swimming. Nicholas has an affinity for exotic cars and custom built vehicles as well. Above all else Nicholas loves his friends as they mean everything to him and along with his family provides an amazing support system. 

Please help us honor and raise funds for this brave young man as he as fought all of his life and displays all the qualities of someone who intends to Finish Strong no matter what!
