As you may have learned over the last year and a half, Jake lost a close friend, 8 year old Kyle Roger, to a brain tumor in early 2009. Since Kyle’s passing his mother, Christin, started the Seattle “Run of Hope”, a charitable race formed in his honor to assist in the funding of pediatric brain tumor research. Last year’s event raised over $250,000 after monumental support from the Seattle community, and because of the great success it will be held every year.
This year’s charitable 5k run/3k walk will be on Sunday, October 3rd in Seattle, and the hope is to achieve another great year of participation and contributions to such an important endeavor. In that spirit, Jake shot some promos for KOMO–Coach Sark’s website has some photos from the taping of his appearance.
Thanks to everyone who helped make 2009′s event such a great success, and we look forward to seeing you in October!
