Racing to end cancer at "Kosten Foundation's 5K Run for Pancreatic Cancer Awareness"
Over 2000 people came out to Shelby Farms Park to participate in the "Kosten Foundation's 5K Run for Pancreatic Cancer Awareness" on Sunday April 2nd.
901 Ummah fielded a team of 16 runners in honor of community member and pancreatic cancer survivor, Umar Khan.
The run began promptly at 2 p.m. and over the course of the next hour, participants ran, jogged and walked the 3.2 mile course.
"We came, we saw, we hustled, and ended up getting medals out of it so it was a good day," said Muaz Khan, second place winner in his group.
901 Ummah's Talha Khan, a sophomore at White Station High School, claimed first place overall with a time of 20 minutes and 16 seconds.
His brother, Muaz, a freshman at White Station, placed second in the "10 to 14 age" group with a time of 28 minutes and 50 seconds.
"I've never done a 5K before so winning my first one was pretty sweet," said Talha.
