Partipants are asked to observe all local and state guidelines. Be aware of social distancing and mask use when not able to keep your distance.
Ari is eight years old. He was diagnosed with a rare form of liver cancer called Embryonal Sarcoma which caused a 17-cm tumor to grow on his liver. The tumor was too large to be immediately removed, so he has had a few months of chemotherapy to shrink it (one in July, two in August, and one in September) Ari is scheduled for surgery to hopefully fully remove the tumor in October. Ari's chemo treatments have attacked and destroyed his permanent teeth. Once he wins this battle with cancer, he will need extensive dental work.
He and his parents will be traveling back and forth between Mt. Pleasant and Devos Children's hospital in Grand Rapids for treatment over the next several months.
Ari's mom needs to be able to take this time off work in order to care for Ari, but her finances are tight. Without financial help, she will have to work nights and care for him during the day.
Ari's siblings have been a part of Central Michigan Homeschool Athletics Cross Country team. Hosting this event is a way for all of Ari's friends to help raise support for him and his family. We hope that you choose to attend. The name of the event reflects one of Ari's passions - succulents.
