Battling cancer isn't too much fun...especially when you are 11-years-old. But good friends and support help you get through it. That is exactly what Maddie Shaw had today at the discovery center fun run.
Maddie's classmates, along with friends and supporters ran today in support of her battle with cancer that developed in her hip.
The run took place at the story garden, a unique feature of the discovery center, and continued up through the hiking trails of the Ross Park Zoo.
Everyone that finished the run got a gold medal.
Proceeds from the run will go to support the Make Some Noise: Cure Kids Cancer Foundation in honor of Maddie.
