Friendly and compassionate, funny and insightful, Ben Goldfogle made a lasting impression on everyone who knew him. He grew up in the Stonegate, Silver Spring neighborhood, attended the elementary school and enjoyed scouting and spending time with friends. Ben bravely fought leukemia under the care of CNMC for six and a half years until he passed away from an infection in September 2009 when he was almost 12. This race honors Ben’s amazing spirit and the many other children who battle life-threatening illnesses every day.
Event begins at 8:30AM
