Runners tackle Treatment Trail in honor of two Door County boys
GREEN BAY - It's a 9-day, 9 city, 200-mile "trail" from Children's Hospital of Wisconsin to Sister Bay in Door County. A small group of runners is hoping you'll join them somewhere along the "Treatment Trail" for a 5k to raise money for Children's Hospital and the Go Bo Foundation.
John Mahnke joined us on the set of Good Day Wisconsin as the trail leads into Green Bay. He's been doing the entire 200 mile trail on foot. Mahnke says the Treatment Trail honors two boys from Door County.
Bo Johnson was diagnosed with a rare form of Leukemia at the age of 12. Johnson lost his battle in September of 2012. The Go Bo foundation helps children with life-threatening medical conditions by funding research, treatment, and families during times of financial need.
Christopher Lorona was diagnosed with a germinoma brain tumor at the age of 14. Chris started his treatment at Children's Hospital in April, 2012. His treatment was successful and right now there is no sign of the tumor. Chris has been part of the group running the Treatment Trail.
You can still register for the four remaining 5k races along the Treatment Trail.
