Organizers of a Quad City area charity run say this years event was a huge success.

The 2nd Annual Nick Teddy Fight Against Ewing's Sarcoma 5K was held on Saturday, September 14, 2013, in Port Byron, Ill.

This year, the Nick Teddy Foundation, along with First Wealth Financial Group of Clinton, IA, say they will donate $20,000 to Liddy Shriver Sarcoma Initiative, to be used exclusively for Ewing's sarcoma research.

Executive director, Holly Larson says the rare pediatric bone cancer currently affects several QCA children and young adults.

An additional $5,000 will be used to support these local patients and their families.

The "Nick Teddy 5k" is an annual celebration of the life of Port Byron native Nicholas Theodore Strub, who died of Ewing's sarcoma in November 2011 at age 29.

The Nick Teddy Foundation was established in his memory, and works to raise money for Ewing's sarcoma research, to increase awareness of the disease in the Quad City area, and to support local Ewing's patients and their families.

In two short years, the foundation has donated over $37,000 to Ewing's sarcoma research.
