Hudson Wade was a bright eyed 5th grader from Abilene, Texas. He got to meet Jesus in early February of 2016 after a courageous four month battle with Leukemia. Hudson’s battle served as an inspirations to thousands on multiple continents as the Wade family showed their faith and trust in God through even the toughest of times. Hudson was an active, intelligent, and caring young man. He loved all sports, especially baseball, swimming, and snow skiing. The Hudson Wade 5k was created to honor the life and legacy of Hudson.
On September 14, 2019, Patty Hanks Shelton School of Nursing has the privilege to sponsor the 5th Annual Hudson Wade 5K. All proceeds benefit the Play 4 Rex Foundation. PHSSN dedicates the upcoming year to raising awareness for pediatric cancer and encourages all community members supporting the nursing school to also support this cause by participating in this year’s walk/run. It’s not too late to register for this year’s HW5K, and PHSSN hopes to see you there!
