When their son was diagnosed with cancer, Gretchen and Larry Witt learned firsthand about how expensive treatment can be. To deal with this, they founded Cookies for Kids' Cancer, a non-profit that raises funds for effective treatments for all types of childhood cancers. One of their biggest fundraisers: the Cookies for Kids' Cancer 5K. On September 12, participants in the 5K warm up with a fitness trainer before sprinting through Walter Y. Elisha Park. Once they reach the finish line, they're awarded with a goodie bag and the greatest post-race gift of all: a cookie.
