2015 Emily's run logoJoin us on Sunday, April 19, 2015, at Westlake High School for Emily’s Rainbow Run & Family Walk!  Emily Lewis would have graduated from high school this year, so we are holding the race one last time to honor Emily before her classmates graduate! 

All event proceeds benefit Emily’s Rainbow Fund whose mission is to support pediatric cancer research at UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital and create awareness of childhood cancers. To date, Emily’s Rainbow Fund has given over $140,000 in memory of Emily, a courageous and inspiring young cancer patient.  Meeting our mission’s goals takes commitment and a united effort. Together we can help cure pediatric cancer and improve the lives of children affected by the disease. Please join us!
