    Time: 4:00 PM - 7:00 PM CDT
    Event Description:
    For immediate release: BCJ Sports in partnership with the Pinky Swear Foundation (pinkyswear.org), announces the inaugural Da Do No Run Run NoK Race for Cancer at the National Sports Center on September 15, 2018. This NoK race is a rare opportunity to cross a race finish line without having to run at all. As a participant, you will be taking only a couple steps and experiencing a whole lot fun and communal pride to raise funds for the Pinky Swear Foundation of Minnesota, an organization that provides emergency financial assistance, education and support for kids with cancer and their families. Before nine-year-old Mitch Chepokas died from cancer, he gave away his savings to other kids battling cancer. He then asked his dad to make a pinky swear promise with him to continue to help kids with cancer and their families. Since 2003, Pinky Swear Foundation eases the financial and emotional impacts experienced by children with cancer and their families by providing basic needs support during a very challenging time. Pinky Swear benefits families of children fighting cancer in several ways. The Envelope program helps families with mortgage and rent payments, utility bills, food and transportation expenses. The Pantry program is an on-site hospital food pantry that helps keep families near the sick child and eases the financial cost of food for day and extended stay visits. The All-Star Weekend program is done in conjunction with the Hilton Airport in Bloomington and provides a break for the family to be together, away from the hospital, stress and worry that go along with caring for a child with cancer. Cancer is not a one-day thing. It is hard to imagine what life is like to have a child going through cancer; it affects the whole family.
