No family wants to find whether they have the resilience and strength to catalyze loss into legacy. 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.

Ryan Hecox has volunteered at the AF Canyon Run Against Cancer since the very beginning, making sure runners' drop bags are waiting for them at the finish line.

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. 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

She’s a mom of three little girls. She’s a wife. She’s a competitive runner. She’s a blogger. And she’s in long-haul cancer treatment. She doesn’t have much time or energy, but she still manages to do it all. There are no two ways about it: Amber is a true inspiration.

Wayne Sleight is built like a runner. He loves running, too — whether alongside is wife or in a friendly competition with his buddies. But that’s not the reason Wayne runs the AF Canyon Run Against Cancer, or why the company he works at, 97th Floor, sponsors the event. Wayne’s here because he hates cancer, and because he loves the healing process that the community around this run brings.

Dr. Jennifer Tittensor is one of those people you don’t really want to ever meet — not in her work capacity, at least. She’s also one of those people who, once you get to know her, you’re incredibly glad you’ve met. A general surgeon by training, Dr. Tittensor’s practice in the American Fork hospital has evolved to the point that she now takes care of people who need breast surgery, with her main focus being on breast cancer. She’s also one of the amazing people you’ll see at the AF Canyon Run Against Cancer, as she takes in the beauty of the canyon and appreciates the toughness of the people she’s helped overcome cancer.

Joani Richardson is a 65-year-old schoolteacher who first ran the AF Canyon Run Against Cancer because it was a beautiful course.

If you're looking for a reason to run and an example of cheerful courage, you could not do better than listening to Joani's story.

There's no such thing as an easy way to find out a loved one has cancer, but Lincoln and Lisa got a double blindside that feels especially brutal. "She felt a little bump on her shoulder — smaller than a pea," Lincoln says, "and she decided to go have it checked out. And the doctor that looked at her said, 'Well, the good news is that skin cancer is one of the most curable cancers there is.'" As it turns out, though, this diagnosis was way off. Lincoln and Lisa's story is tragic, but beautifully told.
