This race was created to bring awareness and support to one of our fellow Miamians. A former and current softball alum, Lauren Anderson, daughter Kailyn Anderson. Kailyn Anderson, age 3, was diagnosed with "High-Risk B-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL)," this past summer.
From what doctors and nurses have told the Anderson family, it looks to be at least a 3 year journey full of treatment, doctor's appointments, chemotherapy, and all around changes in Kailyn's everyday life.
This 5K and 1 Mile race/walk can raise funds and awareness for not only leukemia cancer but all cancer. The Run For ALL race, welcomes people of all ages and fitness levels, from walkers to elite runners.
To help support Kailyn beyond the race or follow her journey, visit her Instagram or GoFundMe pages:
