Vernon Murphy, Founder and CEO of ‘One Run Together, Inc.’, a 501-c3 non-profit organization that benefits local cancer patients, announced that Honey Brook Golf Course will host the Signs of Spring 5K and 1 Mile Fun Walk fundraiser on March 23, 2013. The event is open to the public, with preregistration is required.
Murphy started the organization over one year ago to help local cancer sufferers pay their bills. Murphy’s wife, Beth, battled breast cancer for nine years before losing her fight at the age of 46 on November 13 of 2009. She was the mother of three, Cory, Casey, and Cayla. Their local church, East Brandywine Baptist Church, their children’s school, Conestoga Christian School, and the local community reached out to help the family with not only emotional support, but also by making meals, helping with family needs and transportation when needed.
Murphy said, “When I recently lost my job I thought about how fortunate we were that we did not have to go through it alone. I thought about all the people who might be struggling with nowhere to turn for help. I wanted to start an organization that would help those people to pay utility bills, rent, mortgage, childcare, auto repairs, food, and just the everyday expenses that people have.”
