Run In Memory of Star Alex

If you would like to run in memory of Star Alex, you will select his team when registering and your team t-shirt color is RED. Here's Alex's story.

Alex was an honor student at Marysville High School, a member of the Cross Country & Track teams and an avid bowler for the Youth Bowling League. He worked at Marysville Lanes and loved his job and interacting with the other bowlers. He was a dedicated student and hard worker but most importantly, Alex was a caring, funny and loving person and the best son a mom could ever ask for! 

Alex was diagnosed with Brain Cancer on his 16th birthday after experiencing severe headaches. His tumor was inoperable so he began 7 weeks of Proton Beam Radiation treatments every day in Bloomington, Indiana. After returning home he had a severe seizure that caused a stroke and spent 1 month in Children’s Hospital recovering. He went from not being able to walk to jogging down the hall. All he wanted to do was run with his team again. He was able to walk with his mom and sister in this very 5k for the last time in 2010 before he passed away on Aug 31, 2010. Alex's wonderful sense of humor, positive attitude, and beautiful smile are in our hearts forever. To run In Memory of Star Alex, click here.
