At the insistence of his parents, Malcolm Hill ran the Rodeo Run 10k race in 2009. He actually finished ahead of them and had so much fun! The very next year, at 18-years old, he was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer called Osteosarcoma. He endured months of chemotherapy and had surgeries to remove the tumor from his knee and lungs. He was cancer-free and ready to live life to the fullest, wishing to pursue his artistic goals. While doctors were able to save his leg, he was told he would never run again. And although he never ran another race, Malcolm did run again!
He fought the disease off and on for three years, and on January 11th, 2014, at the age of 21, Malcolm lost this battle against this terrible disease; but he never lost his desire to run! Join us as we run the Rodeo Run in honor of this inspiring young man.
To honor his memory, Rodney and Alana Hill run this race every year with their friends, family, and other supporters. Consider joining TEAM MALCOLM! All donations benefit the MD Anderson Arts in Medicine Program, and the Team is supported by our generous sponsors.
