Since starting Alex’s Duck Duck Run in 2013 we have raised over $160,000 for childhood cancer research. All proceeds go to funding the best clinical trials and research. What better way to hep celebrate Alex’s life than bringing the community together to raise funds and awareness to make a difference in the lives affected by cancer.
