Our third event of 2016 was the Half-Blood Prince Half Marathon: a celebration of Snape and our beloved, Alan Rickman, the man who brought Snape to life.
While the timing of this event was purely coincidence, we cannot ignore the fact that we lost our Half-Blood Prince, Alan Rickman, to pancreatic cancer in January. Hence, it is in his honor that the proceeds from this event went to support Project Purple…a team of runners dedicated to defeating pancreatic cancer, raising awareness, and supporting patients and families affected by this terrible disease that kills more than 80% of those diagnosed.
We are pleased to announce The Half-Blood Prince Half Marathon raised $133,693.52 to support Project Purple.
