When Rachel, Nicole and Catherine lost their neighborhood friend, Sam, to brain cancer, they decided they wanted to help.  They wanted to help make sure kids with cancer have access to safe, effective treatments and they wanted to help Sam's family by showing them that with a little love and a lot of hard work, we can all make a difference.   

So they spent their summer break securing event sponsors, recruiting more than 40 participants, and successfully executing the first annual With Purpose Kids Fun Run.  Their efforts raised more than $10,000 in one day and showed a small midwestern community the power of friendship and love.
