The 7th annual Jose Montaño Foundation 5K to raise cancer awareness

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The Jose Montaño Foundation is hosting its 7th annual 5K Walk Run to raise cancer awareness and give back to local kids.

The foundation was started in 2013 when Jose was 12 years old and battling brain cancer. Since then, the Jose Montaño Foundation’s mission has been to assist children battling cancer and support their families. The organization inspires students to excel at school and in the communities where they live.

The Jose Montaño Foundation 5K is taking place this Sunday, March 1st at Glen Abbey Memorial Park in Bonita. March 1st would have been Jose’s 19th birthday.
