Why The 5K???
Ben is part of a family of four and along with that he has a lot of medical equipment that he must travel with.
This means that his family needs to have a van to make the trips to Memphis.
Very recently their family was in a traffic accident where someone else ran a stop sign and hit them.
This totaled their van and left them with no reliable means of travel to Memphis for Ben’s chemo rounds.
This 5K is to help raise money for the Boone family to purchase a new van to help them continue to travel to Memphis so they can continue Ben’s treatments.
