A 5k fun run and walk will be held at Marymoor Park this Sunday to help fund cancer treatments for Washington State Patrol (WSP) trooper Renee Padgett.
Padgett, a Renton resident and mother of two, is a 21-year veteran with WSP. Last May, she was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, a rare form of blood cancer. Her treatment regime includes multiple rounds of radiation, chemotherapy and two stem-cell transplants.
In 2006, Padgett launched Homeward Bound, a WSP program that places posters of missing children on the sides and backs of tractor-trailers. KING 5 highlighted Homeward Bound and Padgett's fight with cancer in a recent news segment.
Sunday's event begins at 9:30 a.m. at parking lot I in Marymoor Park. A 1-mile kids' race will follow at 10:30 a.m.
Registration for the 5k is $30 for adults and $25 for youth 12 and under. The 1-mile youth fun run is $10.
