Runner raises funds, awareness
Runner Kelly Carr recently completed a run from Fairbanks to Anchorage to raise money for cancer research. During the run, Carr dedicated Mile 15 on the Glenn Highway to Sarah Matthew, an Eagle River teen who died last year of brain cancer. Carr stopped along the run to have photos taken with Sarah’s family and friends. Pictured along with Carr at Mile 15 are (from left), Sarah’s dad, Julius Matthew; Carr; Sarah’s brother, Stephen Matthew; Sarah’s mom, Edna Matthew; Sarah’s sister, Julia Matthew; and Carr’s sister, Molly Wood.
