On September 6, 2012, we lost Passion Foundation founder Tara Parla to her courageous battle with Stage 4 Melanoma. The mother of two young children created and ran this foundation with her husband Jon and family. Her goal was to have sun shades covering all school playgrounds in Southwest Florida. All proceeds to benefit The Passion Foundation, a local non-profit, whose mission is to keep our children shaded and safe from the sun's harmful rays while at school.Offically timed cross-country race.
