Legacy Parkway Bike and Run

Please join us at the Hess Cancer Legacy Bike and Run, held on August 29, 2009. It includes a Half-Marathon, a 20-Mile Bike Tour, and a 2-Mile Fun Run. These three events will be held on the Legacy Parkway, which will be the first time the Parkway has been closed since opening last year. Registration is now open for this event!

The Hess Cancer Foundation, Inc (HCF) is a Utah-based public charity. HCF is all about helping those who need it most and keeping the donations they receive in the local community.

Many public charities have been organized to find a cure for cancer, but that isn’t our goal. We are instead focusing on providing financial assistance to those families that have been struck by cancer and weren’t financially prepared for it.

If you are a father or a mother, then you know how much your child means to you. When your child is diagnosed with cancer, everything changes — your life will change. If cancer steals your child from you, then your wish will be to tell the world what a perfect child you had. HCF only wants to help those parents that have faced such a tragedy do exactly that.
