For as long as I can remember, we would get an energetic phone call from "Hank Studdly, King of the Forest." He would call, make a point, tell us we were beautiful and hang up. One day he called and we didn't hear the magic in his voice. That is when he told us about his son Paul and his battle with Sarcoma.

A while back, Deb wrote an article about Paul Stroup. Click here to read that.

He lost his battle last month. This Saturday in Grand Ledge, his surviving family is having a 5K/Walk to honor his life. Click here to check out the 5K Facebook page for more info. It gets started around 6:30 and will only cost 20 bucks.

 

Here is the description of Stroup's Race After Sarcoma:

"5Kwalk/run to honor Paul Stroup’s courage and valor in the face of the most devastating of circumstance and his encouraging attitude and inspiring stance on what living meant to him. All who run/walk are warriors changed forever by his example and we are donating proceeds to UofM Sarcoma Center for Dr Rashmi Chugh and her team who bought us more than a year to grow together. We honor Paul’s battle, his warriors spirit, and consider his passing a victory for the Kingdom of God. We do this here at Fitzgerald Park of Grand Ledge because this is where Paul and his wife came to be together and to grow closer to God, the source of all life.

First 100 registrants will receive dog tags with the race’s info printed on it.

Please note: 70 T-shirts were ordered. We will make every effort to make sure your size is available. Make sure to register as soon as possible."
