Kate Keefer Runs Ukrops’s Monument Ave 10k for MCSF!

Kate and Ben Keefer

Kate and Ben Keefer

Last year Kate and her Husband Ben ran in this 10K as an opportunity to get in shape, test their athletic abilities, and raise money for the VCU Cancer Center.  It was a rainy day, and many folks backed out of the race, but their motivation for the day was them both saying ”there are cancer patients that would give anything to run in the rain…we’re running!”  What they didn’t realize was their great friend Stephen Satterly’s sister, Mary Claire, was fighting for her life that very day.  MC was diagnoised with an agressive type of leukemia and lost her courageous battle only 4 days later, 2 days after our race.  Mary Claire was 27 years old.

This year Kate would like to ask for your sponsorship and support towards the Mary Claire Satterly Foundation created by MC’s family and close friends. 100% of the proceeds donated and raised will be used to build the Mary Claire Satterly Pediatric Playroom at the new University of Chapel Hill Cancer Hospital, the first of many MCSF projects.  Please inquire with your employer about company matching opportunities as this is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.

We encourage you in supporting Kate and the MCSF!
