Race-2-Place was started in 2011 in memory of Parker Brown, who fought a courageous battle against Leukemia from the age of two. Parker passed away on December 20, 2009, at the tender age of eight. To honor his legacy and his remarkable young life, his family had a vision -- to offer a camp for families who have suffered the loss of a child to tragedy: A camp called Parker’s Place. The proceeds from Race-2-Place allow families to attend Parker’s Place. Over four days, families are given a place to unite, meet other families facing similar challenges, and receive important resources to support them in their journey.
This year we are excited to announce that proceeds from Race-2-Place will also benefit the American Childhood Cancer Organization of the Inland Northwest, whose mission is to educate, support, serve, and advocate for families of children with cancer, survivors of childhood cancer, and the professionals who care for them. Our donation to the ACCO of the Inland Northwest will help them provide emotional support, financial assistance, respite, toys, and many other programs to ensure that kids don’t fight cancer alone.
