Kids Cancer Foundation Hosts Superhero 5K

The 5K race gets underway.

The Kids Cancer Foundation held its annual Superhero 5K in Memory of Sebastian at Royal Palm Beach Commons Park on Saturday, Oct. 30. The 5K began 11 years ago and is named in honor of Sebastian Sarmiento, a courageous 9-year-old boy from Wellington who lost his battle with leukemia in 2009. He truly was a warrior, and the Kids Cancer Foundation is honored to have this 5K race named in his memory. The family’s hope is that the funds generated will help other families in the community who are facing the battle against childhood cancer and help make their journey a little easier. Many people ran the race in superhero costumes, and humans weren’t the only participants. There were several service dogs in training that joined in on the fun.
