About this year's 5K

This year’s 5k is dedicated to a person who defines what it means to be strong. Megan ("Meg") Sporny has handled more in her young life than most adults. While most girls her age are focused on the next dance or college applications, Meg is focused on beating cancer for the second time. Her journey with cancer started shortly into her freshman year of high school. A day after running a cross country race and dancing the night away at her homecoming, Meg woke up unable to walk. She was rushed to Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, where a high grade glioma was discovered in her spinal cord. She endured a lifesaving surgery which resulted in her inability to walk or use her hands. For a year, she lived through radiation, chemotherapy, physical and occupational therapy, doctors’ appointments and tests. Because of her hard work and determination, she was able to rejoin her Cross Country team and for 16 months Meg believed that she had beat the odds. 

 

Unfortunately, in February 2021, Meg’s world was shattered again. Her cancer had returned. Through this second round, Meg has had several surgeries, participated in the BrainChild02 CAR-T Clinical Trial in Seattle, and is back on chemotherapy. This second round with cancer has left Meg unable to walk. But this high school senior still perseveres.  Meg balances school, chemotherapy, physical therapy, and all the other things typical girls her age do. 

 

It’s no wonder her Cross Country team gave her the nickname "Mega" when she was just 10 years old. When she was running with someone in front of her, she would turn on the “Megaspeed.”  So when she got to middle school, she was the ‘mega secret’ to their team wins. She came out of nowhere and boom - a win!  It’s been Meg's thing ever since. 

 

So, for this year’s 5k, we invite you to join us to be #Megastrong while we run like unicorns in honor of one of the strongest young ladies we know!
