About this cause:

When Bruce Waite chose to be a teacher for his career, his intent was to make a difference in the lives of his students. He did just that. He retired in 1989, and in 2002, was diagnosed with mesothelioma - a cancer caused by asbestos exposure. He ran every day for 33 years, logging over 76,000 miles, which was instrumental in holding the meso at bay. In March 2003, Bruce Waite took his final breath. In 2012, his daughter Jill organized the first 5k in Bruce's honor, to raise money for mesothelioma research, so other families do not have to suffer. All of the monies raised at the 2012 - 2015 5ks have been donated to the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation, an organization dedicated to research for a cure. The next race is scheduled for Sunday, Sept 18, 2016 in Ontario, Ohio. Monies from your Bravelet purchase will help with mesothelioma research. THANK YOU!
