Two families walk for a purpose in The Color Run

The Rock family walked in The Color Run for their 4-year-old son Jase Rock, sporting "Kids Get Cancer Too" shirts.

For two families The Color Run has a greater purpose than cornstarch colored powder, for them it's that, "Kids Get Cancer Too."

The Rock and Loomis families are walking for their 4-year-old children who were diagnosed with Leukemia.

"It's a different world, we also have sons who don't have cancer, so it's like we're living two worlds," Lezlie Loomis said.

But both families agree if there's one thing that has come from this illness, it's each other.

"It didn't take long for us to get close, and I'm thankful for them," Angie Rock said.

Rock said they chose The Color Run because the race isn't structured around any one charity or cause. She said everyone is out there to promote a cause special to their heart, and for her family and friends it's childhood cancer.

"This is supposed to be a fun, healthy event," Rock said. "We're out here with the kids to have a good time, and to help bring awareness."
