Run for Redding

Larry Redding, center, stands with his family after participating in the virtual race, Run For Redding 5K, on Thursday. More than $4,000 was raised for the American Cancer Society.

Larry Redding acted as a source of inspiration when his son-in-law, Kendall Fritz, began running marathons.

A few months after Redding was diagnosed with liver cancer, Fritz hoped to show his appreciation by scheduling a virtual Run for Redding 5K in his mentor’s honor. The act, meant to be a symbolic nod, served an even higher purpose when it inspired Redding to lace up his shoes and pound the pavement for 3.1 miles with his family Saturday.
