How it Started
When Jacelyn (Jacey) Lawson was four years old she was diagnosed with a Stage IV Wilm’s Tumor. The community rallied around her and her family and founded Jacey's Race, a non-profit organization that helps kids with cancer or other life threatening illnesses. Jacey fought her second cancer battle in 2018 but we are happy to report that she is on the other side and doing well. Now Jacey, a college graduate, and her family continue to run the race and help other kids like Jacey.
