Cory's Corner: Yaneli's Fun Run

Updated:

FOX 10's Cory McCloskey checks out Yaneli's Fun Run at Cartwright Elementary School, a one-mile mud obstacle course dedicated to a former student.

Yaneli was permanently confined to a wheelchair and was carried around the course during last year's event.

In late 2012, she had another episode of seizures from the same disease that attacked her as a young child and unfortunately passed away.

After her passing, the school re-named the event Yaneli's Fun Run.

Rock Star Boot Camp, Unified Goodyear Firefighter Charities, and local fighter and UFC Lightweight Champion, Ben Henderson, are supporting the run.

Some of the 5th grade students and volunteers will help students that have mental or physical disabilities make it through the course.
