MILES FOR MESO REMEMBRANCE 5K - September 26, 2015

Joining six other locations nationwide, Victoria, Texas is hosting its first ever Miles for Meso Remembrance 5K race. Organized in memory of Robert G. Aikman, this year’s race is meant to honor and remember those who have been affected by mesothelioma, a rare cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. All proceeds from the Miles for Meso Remembrance 5K will go to the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation.

This is a family-friendly event, and wheelchairs, walkers and strollers are welcome. Organizers ask that attendees bring photos of loved ones to contribute to their Remembrance Wall.
