Months after Jonathan Garet and his family spoke before the Cecil Township Board of Supervisors to ask permission to use Southpointe as a venue for a memorial 5K run, they returned to share some awesome news.
“Well, we just told Cecil Township last night, so it is not a secret anymore,” Jonathan Garrett wrote on the Flying Monkey 5K Facebook page Tuesday. “The Scott A. Garet Memorial Foundation will be able to donate $14,000 to the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute, earmarked for lung cancer research. Thank you to all that came out to support our cause!”
With 347 registered participants, Jonathan Garet said the event honoring his late brother Scott, who died after a battle with lung cancer, was “pretty amazing.”
Asked if the Flying Monkey 5K would be an annual event, the young man added: “It absolutely is.”
