Moore and Dena Moore, both of Osage City, cross the finish line
of the “Live Your Life” 5K walk/run Saturday in
Osage City. Jamison Corwine, Osage City, follows.
Around 300 walkers and runners gathered in downtown Osage City
to help battle cancer.
The “Life Your Life” 5K Run/Walk was organized by
family and friends to defray medical expenses for the family
of Dena Bartee, who is battling cancer.
Prior to the walk, Karen Olson, a mid-level provider with the
St. Francis Comprehensive Cancer Center where Bartee receives
treatment, spoke on her condition, and her positive outlook
on life. Suellen Wood of the First Presbyterian Church of Osage
City gave the prayer following the speech.
The walk/run and the associated drawing raised more than $10,000
for the cause.
Family – Tanner, Tyler, Kelsey, Dena and Mike –
released pink and white balloons Saturday before the 5K.
