About the Race
“The Human Race is a charity run/walk started in 2007 by one of Gonzaga’s law students, Kristina Glover. Unfortunately, Kristina lost her battle to ovarian cancer during her final year of law school. Kristina was passionate about the cause behind Partners in Health, an international nonprofit organization that delivers life-saving healthcare to individuals trapped by poverty and disease in communities around the world. GJIL honors Kristina’s dedication to bringing vital medical care to those who need our help. The proceeds that GJIL raises from the Human Race are donated directly to Partners in Health in order to further its goals. Ninety-four cents of every dollar that is donated to Partners in Health is used directly for projects that help reach Partners in Health’s goal of breaking the cycle of poverty and disease.
For the 2019 Human Race, we are proud to also be honoring Heidi Miller Keele who also lost her battle with cancer in 2018. In honor of Kristina and Heidi, the proceeds from the 2019 Race will go to the American Cancer Society. Thank you for helping us support the fight against cancer and for honoring Kristina and Heidi. And a special thank you to the family of Kristina for their continued and generous support of the Human Race.
