Zeke Dutcher Memorial FoundationJoin the "Run for Their Lives" 5k Run/Walk" Sept. 10 to help fight pediatric cancer!

Jim, Kim and Emma Dutcher are hosting the 3rd Annual "Run for Their Lives" 5k Run/Walk" on Saturday, Sept. 10, starting at 11 a.m. at the LSSU Norris Center in Sault Ste. Marie. This event is in memory of their son Ezekiel "Zeke" Dutcher to raise money for pediatric cancer research. The first two "Run for Their Lives" 5K's raised over $30,000, which was sent to CureSearch and St. Baldrick's for childhood cancer research.

Zeke was diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer when he was only 18 months old. He passed away on May 10, 2013, after a two-year battle. Sept. 10 would have been his seventh birthday. Please join the Dutchers in the fight against childhood cancer and help them celebrate Zeke's birthday with the 3rd Annual Zeke Dutcher "Run for Their Lives" 5K Run/Walk. You can register online (or get more information) at zekedutcher.org, or register the day of the race. Registration fee is $25.

All funds raised will benefit the Zeke Dutcher Memorial Foundation, which provides support, awareness and funding for the fight against childhood cancer. The Zeke Dutcher Memorial Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 foundation under the Chippewa County Community Foundation, 511 Ashmun St. Suite 200, PO Box 1979, Sault Ste. Marie, MI 49783.
