Why we called it Duck Duck Run?
Alex loved feeding the ducks at Margaret Upton Arboretum and this race memorializes his playful, fun-loving, all-boy spirit. Please bring your family and friends and celebrate Alex’s inspiring life. He taught us many things, but one was how precious it is to spend good times together.
Did you know?
Since starting Alex’s Duck Duck Run in 2013 we have raised over $150,000 for childhood cancer research. All proceeds go to funding the best clinical trials and research. What better way to hep celebrate Alex’s life than bringing the community together to raise funds and awareness to make a difference in the lives affected by cancer.
Join us next year!
