On Sunday, Oct. 29, the Wellington Runners Club will present the 13th annual Wellington 10 Miler, Sebastian’s 5k Walk/Run and Kids Fun Run to benefit the Kids Cancer Foundation.
The event honors Sebastian Sarmiento, a courageous 9-year-old boy from Wellington who bravely battled cancer. Despite all the hardship he faced during his battle with cancer, he never gave up hope and showed all those who were fortunate enough to know him the true meaning of courage. The Kids Cancer Foundation and the Wellington Runners Club are honored to have the 5K race named in his memory. The family’s hope is that the funds generated will help other families facing the battle against childhood cancer and help make their journey a little easier.
