The 10th annual Boo! Run to support renal cell cancer research was a huge success

The 10th annual Boo! Run for Life 10K run and Tidal Basin walk was held on October 4th in Washington, DC. Despite threatening weather earlier in the week from Hurricane Jaoquin, it turned out to be a lovely day for the race. And, most importantly, we raised a record amount of money towards renal cell cancer research, thanks to all of the participants, fundraisers, and corporate sponsors.
