Why We Walk: To Honor Mackenzie
“When our daughter Mackenzie was diagnosed with advanced alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma in March 2004, we were devastated. But that was nothing compared to the devastation we’ve been feeling since she lost her battle to the disease six years later on March 3, 2010. We walk and run In Loving Memory of Mackenzie, hoping that advances in research will bring about better treatment options and a cure.”
— Tracy Wright, mother of Mackenzie
