Pre-Professional Medical Society (PPMS) is proud to announce its Third annual PPMS Charity 5k and Family Fun Run. This year, our charity is Ian Williams who was diagnosed with brain cancer in July of 2011. Doctors realized that his form of brain cancer is aggressive and his response to an almost deadly surgery included his arms and legs not functioning properly, as well as his eyes not tracking. Ian has been recovering from surgery by going to speech, physical, and occupational therapy as well as his Proton Therapy for the cancer. Throughout the last few months his family have
been taking long trips to visit Ian through this difficult time, and we hope to help his
family by raising funds to alleviate costs of recovery. The event will consist of a 5k race
on the UCF campus beginning and ending at Memory Mall, located in front of the new
UCF Arena. Prizes will be awarded to the top male and female runners. All runners will
be supplied with a commemorative race t-shirt along with refreshments before and
after the race.
