KNOX Out Childhood Cancer Event

Knox Lewis was born on September 10, 2001. At just 7 months of age, his mother found a lump on his bottom during a diaper change.

Knox's parents began fighting it...even taking their son back and forth to Houston for 7 weeks. Knox received radiation, but remained a sweet baby boy through all of it.

Just six months after being diagnosed, Knox Lewis lost his battle at the age of one.

His family wants their son to be remembered and are giving back to others.

They are teaming up with Anytime Fitness-Gretna, the Gretna Optimist Club and the Metro Area Youth Foundation to host a 5k Run/Walk as well as a fun run for children. All proceeds raised will benefit the Metro Area Youth Foundation.

The M.A.Y.F. has no paid administrative positions, and all the money will go to families fighting the fight of a lifetime. This foundation gives financial assistance to families going thru cancer treatment here in Omaha.

The "KNOX out Childhood Cancer" event is:

Saturday, June 29th
9-12:30 a.m.
5K starts at the Gretna park

There is BBQ in the park, raffles, food, games and entertainment
