 Richard Finishes Day 8 - September 17: Richard Runs for Emilio

Richard Runs for Emilio Richard Runs for Emilio What can we say about our little hero that hasn't alrealy been said. Only that if Emilio were here today, he would call his parents the heroes for all they have done for so many families. Richard and Diane turned their tragedy into hope for others. Truly, the heart and soul of ENF is providing support, transportation, and possibly ease some of the many burdens these families face when dealing with life-threathing diseases. Emilio lost his battle with leukemia at the age of five. Despite his short time here, his legend lives on, in hopes of helping others. The mission is simple, the struggles are often grueling, but in the end if one family is touched by ENF, then we have succeeded in providing HOPE.

Richard Runs for Hope-Closing Ceremonies

185 Miles in 8 days

Help us raise $100,000 toward our programs!

On Saturday, September 10, at 8 am, Richard Nares, Executive Director of the Emilio Nares Foundation (ENF), began his Run for Hope to draw attention to Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

The goal is to make the public aware of the numerous programs that ENF provides that help to ease the burden on families who find themselves suddenly coping with the effects of childhood cancer and without the resources to meet the tremendous and overwhelming demands.

Over an eight day period, Richard ran over 175 miles (the equivalent of nearly 7 marathon races) from Los Angeles Children's Hospital to Rady Children's Hospital San Diego, with a stop at Orange County Children's Hospital in between. The ENF provides programs and services in all three of these hospitals to families whose children are undergoing treatment for childhood cancer.
