The Kramer family

Starting in the middle of March, McKade Kramer, son of John and Stacey Kramer, was sick and having pains all over his body. The family made several emergency room and doctor visits trying to figure out what was wrong. Finally, weeks later in June and shortly after his 5th birthday, McKade was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. For the next three years McKade will have to go through chemotherapy and other treatments to combat the cancer in his body. Even through this trial, the Kramer family has been an example of faith and hope to all of those around them. McKade is a fighter, and has been so strong through all the needle pokes, testing, side effects and sickness.

Please join us Saturday, August 26th, at the Mighty McKade 5K Family Fun Run to show your support to the Kramer family. Since McKade is a fan of superheroes and a beacon of strength to our community, the event is superhero themed. Bring your family and wear your superhero gear as we come together to encourage McKade to continue to be brave through this long and grueling process.

To kick off the 5K, we will have a “Mighty Mad Dash,” for all of the little superheroes. The event will start at 9:00 am, but come pick up your packet and check out the silent auction from 8:00-8:45 am. The race will start and end at the Spanish Fork Sports Park, with the route going along the River Trail. This will be a fun event for all ages, runners or walkers. Strollers are also welcome. All proceeds will go to the Kramer family. To register go to runnercard.com and search for Mighty McKade.
