5th Annual Alex & Arleen Boyes 5K Run and 3K walk

August 9, 2014

Race Purpose:     

Arleen and Alex Boyes, a mother and son, were a committed Cancer Support Community Greater Philadelphia volunteers at our Gilda’s Club location. Alex completed his Eagle Scout project there and Arleen helped run the volunteer committee. In the fall of 2009, at the age of 22, Alex passed away from skin cancer. In late 2013, Arleen also passed away from breast cancer. All funds raised from the event will stay locally to support the Cancer Support Community Greater Philadelphia in its mission to ensure that no one has to face cancer alone.
