LukeStrong 2020 5K Run/Walk

Date: Sept 26, 2020
Every single day more than 40 children are diagnosed with cancer and families' lives are turned upside down.

The LukeStrong Foundation was established from the heart of Luke Grumbles, a 10 year old boy from Palestine, Texas. He was diagnosed with leukemia on September 11, 2017, and received 4 intense rounds of chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant. Luke was hospitalized for over 150 days, but during his stay, he realized he wanted to make a difference in the lives of other kids fighting cancer. He wanted to start the LukeStrong Foundation. Luke’s dreams were to make care packages for families, have a therapy dog, and help families financially during their crisis. However, Luke relapsed and passed away on May 24th, 2018. We made a promise to him to fulfill his desires for the foundation he created.

The goals of the LukeStrong Foundation will be to support families of children and young adults fighting all types of cancer financially, whether it be for medical bills, traveling expenses, food, utilities, rent, or car payments. We are dedicated to minimizing the burdens that so many families face during long term illnesses.

All proceeds will go to the LukeStrong Foundation.
