At our inaugural walk in 2015 and at last year’s event in memory of our dear Peter, we were truly touched by the overwhelming love and support that was shown by family and friends. In the time that’s passed, the incidence rate of oral cancer has continued to rise, and with it, our resolve to raise money for education and research initiatives in memory of Peter. We hope you will join us on Saturday, April 22, 2017, for the 3rd Annual Oral Cancer Foundation 5k Walk/Run in memory of Peter McGee Hoffman. It will be a day to remember Peter, help us achieve his goal of spreading awareness and raise critical funds in the fight to end oral cancer. Please register below and continue to check back for updated information about the event. We look forward to seeing you there!
Peter McGee Hoffman was a healthy, active 23-year-old when diagnosed with tongue cancer in August 2008. He died just 7 short months later at the age of 24. Peter was unbelievably strong during his illness and had already begun planning a fundraising 5k from his hospital bed to raise awareness of oral cancer. Peter lived his life with kindness, generosity and a boundless sense of adventure. Inspired by those memories of Peter, his family and friends have organized 5k events the last two years, and hope to continue Peter’s vision with this year’s 5k Walk/Run.
