Modesto sure can make a great impression on it’s visitors. Such was the case with Houston radio personality, Kevin Kline.
Kevin came out for our annual Movie Night. We were screening a documentary, Dear Chelsey, about his quest to run across Texas to honor 13 children who lost their battle with cancer.
During his visit, Kevin ran a 20 mile training run with Teens Run Modesto and our adult training group.
The experience must have been a memorable one, because Kevin and his wife, Trish, are flying out for Modesto Marathon.
Running for Andrew
Finding a cure for pediatric cancer is a passion for the Kline family. Their non-profit organization, the Snowdrop Foundation, works to raise funds for cancer research.
After Movie Night, Kevin got a chance to hear the story of Andrew Santana, son of Jesse and Ernestina Santana. Andrew lost is fight against cancer at the young age of 15. Many of you may be familiar with Andrew as a local 5K race is held in Modesto in his honor (Andrew’s Run).
Kevin has decided to run the Modesto Marathon to honor the memory of Andrew.
Please help us to extend a warm Modesto welcome to the Kline’s during their visit.
