About This Activity

On May 27, 2011, Lise Marie Palmer & her unborn baby, Faith, went for a run while on a family vacation. They were tragically hit by a car and killed instantly. Lise lived her life for God and her family; parents, Craig and Cathy, husband Ryan and sons Ray and Mac. Lise enjoyed running and living a healthly lifestyle. We honor her by doing this annual run, giving back as she always tried to do. Friends & family of the Macadangdang and Palmer's thank you in advance for your support.

Fun Facts about Damonick

Damonick is 6 years old and attends Sunrise Elementary. He loves his family, legos, Ninja Turtles, Spiderman, Batman and Angry Birds. When I asked Damonick what his likes and dislikes were he was quick to respond with, "I don't like chocolate"...then added he loves fruit snacks and his favorite candy is Skittles!
Damonick looks forward to completing his treatment, being cancer free and going on a trip to Legoland!
