Bingham High football player Riley Culley’s life changed forever March 27 when he was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer. He helped the Miners win the 5A championship and had planned on playing football at Dixie State.
Instead, Culley will spend the next nine to 12 months in and out of Primary Children’s Hospital undergoing chemo treatments and surgery.
To honor the player and raise funds for him, a benefit run is scheduled Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to noon at Bingham High School. The event is a walking and running event that includes door prizes and raffle prizes, a giant bake sale, silent auction, food, face painting and character drawings. Raffle prizes include a new sofa and love seat, GoPro cameras, a week stay in a cabin, golf packages, lower bowl jazz tickets, signed helmets from Utah and BYU, massages and hair certificates.
Registration is $20 online and $25 the day of the race. To register online, go to www.eventbrite.com/e/run-for-riley-tackle-cancer-5K-benefit-run-tickets-11216818807.
