The third annual Jaimeson Jones Memorial 5k will take place at 9 a.m. on Sunday at Saint Edward State Park in Kenmore.
The event raises funds for the Jaimeson Jones Memorial Scholarship, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit associated with the Washington State University Foundation. The scholarship benefits siblings and family members of cancer patients.
The run will also be accompanied by raffle prizes and medals will be given to the first runners to finish the race.
Jones, who grew up in Bothell and graduated from Bothell High School in 2008, was a teenager when he was first diagnosed with stage five testicular cancer. Treatment put the Bothell High School track and cross country star into remission. But the cancer returned during his first year at Washington State University. Jones died in 2010 at the age of 20.
To register for the race go here. Registration is between $30-40 per participant. Day-of-race registration begins at 8 a.m.
