The City of Gulf Breeze will sponsor the Quentin Cooper Liver Life 5K Run/Walk beginning at 8 a.m. Saturday at Dolphin Stadium. The race, organized by the Gulf Breeze High School Student Government Association, will honor GBHS senior and liver cancer patient Quentin Cooper. Cooper has been battling liver cancer for two years and is undergoing chemotherapy treatments. He recently was removed from the liver transplant list because cancer had spread beyond his liver. Besides helping with Cooper’s medical costs and benefitting an organization of his choice, proceeds from the race will help create a fund to benefit Gulf Breeze students with medical needs in the future.
Cost to participate is $20. Participants can register before the race Saturday.
