SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - William and Danielle Webb lost their son William to neuroblastoma at the age of four in 2013 and now the couple operates a foundation in his honor.

They are getting ready for the annual Warriors for William 5K, one of their biggest fundraisers.

The race will be held Sunday afternoon in Richmond Hill’s J.F. Gregory Park with a kids run, a 5K. It will be followed by a full day of family activities including games and bouncy houses. And because superheroes were William’s favorite, lots of superheroes will be on hand for an event that is as much a celebration of life as an important fundraiser.

“It’s a really neat event, for us, it’s a really emotional event,’’ Danielle Webb said. “But at the end of the day, we’re there to make a difference for the kids who have either already been diagnosed or are yet to be diagnosed because we’re trying to fund that cure for everybody who has some form of childhood cancer."

Online registration has closed, but you can sign up on race day. The kids run will start at 1:30 p.m. and the 5K begins at 2 p.m.
