The Fall Fest 5K is an in-person (or virtual) run/walk in honor of Luke Wyatt Morin.  Luke was an active, articulate, and loving child.  He was always quick to offer hugs and snuggles.  He adored his big sister, Phebe, and loved playing with his Hot Wheels cars and tracks for hours on end while listening to his favorite Beatles music. 

After symptoms that appeared suddenly, Luke was diagnosed with an inoperable and aggressive brain tumor called DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma).  Seventeen days later, Luke left this world way too soon; he was 5 years old.

The young and innocent who fall prey to DIPG are given the same treatment options as were offered over 50 years ago. Funding research is imperative to finding better treatment. There is still no effective treatment for DIPG and no chance of survival.  Government funding is not adequate for pediatric cancer research and many of the fundraising efforts fall on bereaved families, private foundations, and medical professionals who should be in the research lab or with their patients. 

Proceeds from this event will go to the DIPG research team at Children’s Hospital Colorado where this dedicated group is advancing treatments and cures for DIPG and needs funding.  They collaborate with many national institutions to research this monster called DIPG. With proper resources, their groundbreaking work will bring hope into the lives of children and families affected by this horrible disease. Let's COME TOGETHER and help END DIPG!

Thank you for your support!
