Fall Fest 5K in honor of Luke Morin

Run/Walk/Ride Virtual Challenge in November 2020 Denver, CO 80238 US

Luke Wyatt Morin spent 5 ½ years on this earth as a happy, kind, playful, active, and articulate little boy; a very loving child with a genuine enthusiasm for life equaled only by his empathy for others.  He was always quick to offer hugs and snuggles or an unsolicited compliment or “I love you”. In addition to adoring his big sister Phebe, Luke loved playing with his Hot Wheels cars and building tracks for hours on end.  He loved The Beatles and would frequently host impromptu dance parties in his room.  Only the last two weeks of Luke’s time here did he suffer.  Through it all, he smiled, he laughed, he trusted his family and was very brave.   

After symptoms that appeared suddenly and two visits to the pediatrician, Luke was taken to Children’s Hospital Colorado.  On April 8, 2018, Luke’s family received the devastating news that there was an inoperable tumor in Luke’s brain called DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma). Only seventeen days later, Luke lost his battle with DIPG. 

We MUST HAVE YOUR HELP to support Children's Hospital Colorado!  Funding is needed for the special and dedicated team fighting this brutal disease to ensure future children and their families will not experience such a life-altering event.  Please click here to donate. 100% of your donation will be directed to Dr. Rajeev Vibhakar's Pediatric DIPG research team at Children's Hospital Colorado.  This team will make a difference in the lives of children and families affected by DIPG.  Their work will increase the survival rate for this horrible disease.   

All our gratitude to you for your support in our mission.
Cam, Jill, Phebe & Luke Morin
