Rank #2: Meet the Organizers

Podcast cover
Read more

Kevin Brooks had just finished doing an overnight relay race in Southern Utah with some friends. Exhausted and sleep-deprived, the conversation wandered over to the topic of downhill runs and the question of why nobody had put on a race down American Fork Canyon.

The question stuck with Kevin more than you’d think anyidea born of a post-race rambling might. By the end of the next workday, the question had blossomed into an idea.

Listen to race organizers Kevin and Holly talk about the beginnings of the  AF Canyon Run Against Cancer, the people who participate, and what makes this race important.

But that’s the challenge Jayci’s family has, and together — with their extended family — they gather each year at the AF Canyon Run Against Cancer. There, they run together and walk together, talk and listen together, and remember Jayci. 

All while wearing very cool matching T-shirts.

Rank #4: Physics and Heavy Lifting

Podcast cover
Read more

When a race starts high up in the mountain, early in the morning, having warm clothes and a blanket while waiting at the starting line is a must. And of course you want to be able to pick all that gear up at the finish line.

And with the AF Canyon Run Against Cancer, it is waiting for you at the finish line. How? Well, with a lot of commitment, smarts, hard work and a good plan — all of which race volunteer Ryan Hecox has in spades.

But “Race Volunteer” doesn’t even begin to cover Ryan, because Ryan’s day job is as a physicist, working behind the scenes to help people get their radiation treatment exactly right as they fight cancer.

And he does it all with a big smile on his face.

Podcast cover
Read more

If you’ve live in Utah Valley, you almost certainly know about and read Utah Valley Magazine, which Jeanette Bennett and her husband launched in back in 2000, describing the magazine as a publication “for people who love the valley.”

What you may notknow, however, is that Jeanette and her small staff publish manypublications.

And she’s a mom of four young children.

With everything on her plate, you could well wonder how Jeanette is able to find time to be a runner. But she does find time. In fact, she is able to find time to run the AF Canyon Run Against Cancer each year…during which she’s had some extraordinary moments that have to be heard to be believed.
