MILES FOR MESO - WA MEMORIAL 5K RUN/WALK
The Miles for Meso WA Memorial 5K Run/Walk returns for its second year to beautiful Federal, Washington, on July 4, 2013. The race is organized in honor of the memory Dick Dyhrman, a Weyerhaeuser Company Geologist, Bud Hatley, Federal Way School District Athletic Director, and Bob Stewart, Federal Way High School Teacher and Coach.
Last year, WA Memorial race organizers exceeded their goal to raised funds and awareness about mesothelioma, a deadly cancer caused by asbestos exposure. This year the goal is to raise $15,000 from registration fees and donations that will benefit the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation.
