About Tony's Trot Kids Fun Run:
The Kids Fun Run honors former White House Press Secretary Tony Snow who lost his battle to colon cancer in July of 2008. The Kids Fun Run is not only a place for our younger runners and walkers to show their stuff, but a time for us to reflect on the passing of an extraordinary parent who was an inspiration to his children and many others.
