A couple of months ago, one of our miracle kids, Jackson had a jungle themed fun run in his elementary school but due to his treatments he was unable to attend. Jackson was diagnosed with a life threatening condition when he was very young, resulting in him having regular check-ups throughout the year. Every kid deserves to have a wonderful childhood, and this is why CometTHON is hosting a Jungle Run starting at the UTD Plinth on March 7th. Registration begins at 8 AM, and the race begins at 9 am with the event finishing at 2 pm. We will have a bounce house, and plenty of free food! As the run is jungle themed, feel welcome to dress up as your favorite jungle animal or explorer! This event is going to involve a lot of running, but don’t run late!

Dogs are welcome and encouraged to run in the fun run!
