My Story…

My mother was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in March of 2004. Within 5 weeks of her diagnosis she left us to be with the Lord. In 2004 the survival rate for pancreatic cancer was very low. It has improved since then but still has a long way to go. In 2009 the Kosten Foundation had their first 5K to raise money for pancreatic cancer research. My sister, Michelle, has been a participant of this race every year since it started. In 2017 my sister, brother and I started a team, Team Wilma, in honor of our mother to help raise money for this event. We provide all those that sign up to participate or donate with a Team Wilma T-shirt and set up a tent with food and drinks where we can enjoy some fellowship before the race starts. This research is very important to us. I would appreciate anything you can do to help me with my mission to raise $1,500. Every $5 donation adds up. If you can't donate please share.

Donate to help Janet raise money for KOSTEN FOUNDATION KICK IT 5K’s fundraising campaign.
