Benjamin Bobo turned 1-year old on Saturday, Sept. 9. During his first year, he battled leukemia but is in remission now. The Bone Marrow Blitz was to raise money for the Children’s Hospital Cancer Center. Between donations and fees for the race, the event raised more than $25,000. Benjamin’s nurses that cared for him traveled to Auburn for the event. Benjamin is the son of Kevin and Catherine Bobo, who, along with his older sister, were all at the run.
