Race for the Ribbon 5K honors those fighting cancer

July 16, 2019

The 12th annual Race for the Ribbon was held July 13 on Wilmington Avenue in Rehoboth Beach in memory of Nancy L. Hendershot, and to honor Jackeline Olivas-Marin and Miguel Robledo-Mendez, two Cape students facing cancer head-on. Both are at different points in their cancer journeys, but they are remarkably courageous kids.
