Video: What it means to ‘Strut for Kids’ with cancer

WILMINGTON — “We Plan, We Run, We Race for Them” was a motto that originated seven years ago as a group of moms sat around the kitchen table to plan the First Annual Cardinal Strut. This group of moms made a promise to two other Holly Tree Elementary moms – that their sons, Bryson Parry and Jakob Hatton, who lost their battles with cancer, would never be forgotten. Over the years the call to support other local families whose children were diagnosed with cancer grew stronger, and led to the formation of Strut for Kids Inc. in 2016.

Strut for Kids Inc., is a non-profit organization that provides assistance funds to families of children in New Hanover County who have been diagnosed with cancer. The proceeds from the Cardinal Strut will now directly impact children in New Hanover County. The race continues to be hosted by Holly Tree Elementary School and would not be possible without the strong support of Holly Tree Elementary PTA.

Video coverage from Saturday’s event was provided by Cape Fear Gear’s Steve Klem. For more from Cape Fear Gear, visit its website at, and follow on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
