Event proceeds go to the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation to support patients and their families.

More than 160 runners and walkers competed in the 8th annual Miles for Meso 5k Run/Walk on July 4, which started and finished at the Federal Way Community Center.

Jameson Karmell finished first with a time of 18:45. Scott Maclaren and Kathleen Riordan finished second and third 30 and 40 seconds later.

All proceeds go to the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation to support patients and their families, provide research grants and create national awareness. Mesothelioma is a cancer caused by asbestos exposure. This event is held in memory of Dick Dyhrman, Bud Hatley, Bob Stewart and all other Washington residents who have died from mesothelioma.
