Will Morgan’s shy smile and polite, soft-spoken commentary belies his near-celebrity status. Since learning in 2009 that he had Ewing’s sarcoma, a form of bone cancer … he has received an outpouring of support from the Lake Highlands neighborhood, mom Renee Long says.

“We really want to thank the community. When Will was diagnosed, we asked for prayers … when I started seeing all the people rallying around us, I knew that Christ was at work and that we could use this to share his message.” (more from our fall 2010 story.)

A run/walk to help Will and other young patients is planned for Saturday, April 14 at Bachman Lake. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. off the NW Highway entrance. Race begins at 9:30. Cost is just $10 and free for kids under 16. Not up for a run? You can also donate here at the Will to Win team page.
