GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Thousands of children are diagnosed with cancer every year in the United States. Many of them, including Vinny DiGerolamo, fight for years but don't survive. He was nine years old.

In an effort to benefit one of the foundations that meant so much to Vinny and his family over the years, Vinny's parents Sarah and Charlie DiGerolamo are helping organize a 5k Walk/Run called Walk 4 Our Kids. It will be Saturday, May 10 at Fourth of July Park in Kernersville from 8:00 am. - 11:30 a.m. The proceeds will benefit Kids of Childhood Cancer Foundation and those in the Brenner's Pediatric Oncology Ward.

Register for the race here.
