The Annual Shanerock Run


Every day, 43 children worldwide are diagnosed with a form of childhood cancer. This shocking statistic impacts our youth. Childhood cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children under the age of 19 in the United States, yet receives less than 4% of national cancer funding.

In 2010, Shane Haddad was diagnosed with brain cancer. Shane’s parents, Amy and Eric Haddad, understand the challenges that families face when you have a child with cancer. With this thought in mind, Eric and Amy decided to create Shanerock, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Shanerock focuses on supporting local families who are battling pediatric cancer and other non-profits who support the fight against pediatric cancer.


On Sunday, September 30, 2018, Saint Ignatius High School Running with the Cats Club proudly presents the 3rd annual Shanerock Run, a 5K run and/or 1M walk to be held at Saint Ignatius High School. Last year we hosted 1,300 participants and contributed over $54,000 to Shanerock. With your support, we hope to exceed that goal this year.

The Running with the Cats Club was started in 2014 and its mission is to partner children with special needs with Saint Ignatius High School students to train for and complete a 5k race. During our training we not only focus on running but also on instilling confidence, building friendships, and practicing social skills. Due to our tremendous support last year, we are very excited for our group to participate in the 3rd annual Shanerock Run. This gives our running group the opportunity to practice the ultimate social skill, which is thinking and doing for others.
