Tucker’s Trek 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run is an annual run to remember and celebrate the life of Tucker Hunt and benefitting Emily’s Power for a Cure Neuroblastoma Foundation, an organization that Tucker supported with his whole heart! Tucker Hunt was a 13 year old boy from Chattanooga who unexpectedly passed away in December, 2010. Though Tucker’s time here on earth was too short, he was a generous and compassionate young man, filled with great enthusiasm, kindness, humor and love. He was and always will be an advocate for his dear friend, Emily. Tucker’s Trek lets our actions speak for those who have no voice.
Join us Sunday, May 3, 2015 as we run/walk through the campus of Tucker's school, The Baylor School. Help us celebrate all Tucker continues to love while supporting a great cause with friends, family, food and music.
