Kirk Goodwin Run
March 25, 2023
The Kirk Goodwin Run started in 1984. During pledging Kirk Goodwin, a member of Galaxy, tragically passed away. His friends decided to plan an event to raise money for the hospital and burial fees. They developed the Kirk Goodwin 5k which has continued every year since. This year we have chosen to partner and support Kade Parmelly in his fight against Leukemia, read more about his story below.
Kade Parmelly's Story
Kade is originally from the Abilene area and went to Wylie High School. After graduation, he pursued his dream of playing football at the college level which is when he found his home at Abilene Christian University. He made a lasting impact on the ACU community and is often described as joyful, hilarious, and a friend to everyone. He is the type of guy, to know him is to love him. Earlier this year, Kade was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia and is currently receiving treatment in Dallas. Your funds would go directly to Kade and his family to contribute to his medical bills and any other expenses they may encounter while he is unable to work. We want to help ease the burden on Kade and his family during this troublesome time and would absolutely love to have you join us.
There are two ways you can get involved by donating to Kade through KGR or by signing up for the race!
