This year, our team is running for two friends, Claire and Arthur.

I first ran the CHOP 5K in 2012 as a freshman at Penn, when our team captain organized the team in rememberance of her friend, who passed away from alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma. 

Then, in July 2016, our friend Arthur ended up passing away after nearly two years of fighting leukemia. This year we'll be running in his remembrance as well.

A group of us who went to Penn together will be back in Philly this Fall to run the 5K again in order to honor our friends' memories and to raise money for CHOP in their fight against cancer. 

Thank you for your support!
