ABOUT GREY RIBBON DUBUQUE
The event was originally to honor and raise funds for Dubuque Senior High School Cross Country and Track Coach Jim Boughton to help him fight his condition. Unfortunately Coach Boughton passed away just a few weeks before the event after a tremendous battle with brain cancer.
The run now continues as a memorial to honor his hard work and legacy of achievement he left behind. It is also used as an avenue to continue the fight against brain related cancers by donating all of it proceeds to help others fight brain cancer.
