Brooke Hester Hustle
Each August, Kennedale residents gather for this 5k race/fun run to raise money for Childhood Cancer in honor of Brooke Hester, the child of a Kennedale family who died in 2015 after a long, couragous fight with cancer. Throughout her life, Brooke was dedicated to supporting other children through their suffering and funding more cancer research, and the family has continued those efforts. Learn more about the event and how to get involved here.
