May 20, 2018 @ 8:00 AM - 11:00 AM

In August 2015, Dawn Hill was living her life, a life she loved so dearly…one she always spoke of as perfect. She had just ran a 10K trail run, hiked the Sugarloaf Mountains, kayaked the Gunpowder River and taken a cruise to Bermuda & Bahamas to enjoy the blue waters. On that cruise, she began to have excruciating stomach pains and upon returning home, was quickly diagnosed with Stage IV pancreatic cancer (that had metastasized to her liver and stomach). Dawn underwent over a year of intense clinical trial treatments at Hopkins but sadly, she passed away on 12/20/2016, after her warrior-heart fought 16 month battle. Dawn brought HOPE and INSPIRATION to many her friends & family and even strangers who followed her story on Facebook through shared posts. Dawn was a true warrior and friends and family have established the Dawn Hill Fight Foundation, in her honor, to raise funds for families in need that are battling Pancreatic Cancer!

Pancreatic cancer is the 3rd leading cause of cancer-related death in the United States. Pancreatic cancer has the highest mortality rate of all major cancers. 94% of pancreatic cancer patients will die within five years of diagnosis – only 9% will survive more than five years. [source]

Run it, walk it, bring the family! All are welcome as this is a day to celebrate life and to support each other. Please join us to help families fight Pancreatic Cancer!
