In January of 2015, Kenny Capps, an avid ultramarathon runner from Black Mountain, NC, was forced to stop running after being diagnosed with stage-two Multiple Myeloma, which currently has no cure. After multiple rounds of chemotherapy and infusions, Capps underwent a mostly successful bone marrow transplant in August 2015. With his cancer in check, though not in remission, Capps began running again in 2017. This Saturday, April 1, 2018, Capps will depart from Jockey’s Ridge State Park near Nags Head, North Carolina on the Mountains-to-Sea Trail destined for Clingmans Dome, 1,175 miles away, to raise awareness and funds for Myeloma.
“Kenny is an inspiration to us all,” said Dave Petri, Farm to Feet VP of Marketing. “He is facing down two intimidating foes, cancer and a thousand mile-plus trail run, and we look forward to running with him when he crosses into Surrey County.” (03/30/2018) Views: 995 ⚡AMP
