Run Live Remember

Kent’s Run was established to raise money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and to honor the life of Kent Ribordy, a Boone Grove High School student/athlete who passed away in June 2007 from Leukemia.

In nine years, Kent’s Run has raised over $350,000 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society! We would like to thank our sponsors, participants and others who have donated both time and money to help make Kent's Run a huge success. Kent’s Run is just another example of the exceptional things that can happen when people rally together!

"Hi everyone, it's Been A Great Run! Yes, you have read this correctly. It is the 10th Annual of Kent's Run and we have decided that this will be the final one. It has been a very difficult and emotional decision but we feel that it is the right decision. With that being said, we would like to make this last event the BIGGEST and BEST event yet! We appreciate all the support from family, friends and the running community, and we hope that you can all join us on Saturday, May 27th for one great last run!" - THANK YOU, Pam, Dan and Kara Ribordy
