Third annual Run for Love event attracts dozens

Posted: Updated:

The third annual Run For Love event took place at Riverfront Park in Billings Sunday.

The event was held by the non-profit organziation called Cassie's Gifts of Love, a foundation set up in the honor and memory of a teenager who died of stage 4 cancer.

KULR-8 spoke with Brent Lebrun who knew Cassie and attends the run each year. He said he participates each year to support the fight against childhood cancer.

We also caught up with Donna Mattson who believes running is a great form of excercise. She said she encourages her granddaughter to participate in events that include running.

"When I suggested this one, she said 'Yes, let's do that one', Mattson said. "She said 'You know when you see the commercials on T.V. for kids with cancer? I almost can't watch them, it makes me cry.' "

"It's just about supporting families and your community, and getting together," Lebrun added. "It's also about getting out and enjoying the beautiful weather, even if it is a little bit cloudy."

The Run For Love event will take place again next year in 2019.
