Imagine having a child die at a young age. Imagine the pain the family goes through. Now imagine being a family trying to make a difference. This great family has gone through all this.

The Knebusch family, here in Amarillo, lost their daughter Madison when she was barely 16. That is too young to say goodbye. The Knebusch's in the years since her passing has done a lot to help with the fight against pediatric cancer.

They have created the MTK Foundation, in honor of Madison Taylor Knebusch. This foundation has done a lot to raise awareness and funds. They have raised a lot of money with different events to help out.

They also have ways that you can get involved. Every year (except of course last year) they host the MTK Run. It consists of a 10K, 5K and Fun Run/Walk. Oh and if you are more of a sleeper they have you covered too.

This year it will be happening on Saturday. This year they are moving the location to  Austin park to give everyone more room. This event is always a good time. I will be out there again as the emcee. I will have tons of prizes given to people who are participating. They always seem to get a lot of great sponsors and a lot of awesome gift cards.

There is still time to get signed up. You have different options. You can compete or you can just go and have fun. There is even an option to sleep walk. Yes, you don't even have to wake up that morning and you can still help out.

Here is where to go to get registered.

You still have time to register but don't wait. Deadline is coming up. You can find out more about the MTK Foundation HERE. This is always a lot of fun and we would love to see you out at Austin Park.
