KW Southwest Sponsor Sixth Annual Brent Event

As a part of the Keller Williams’ “Give Where You Live” initiative, KW Southwest teamed up with the Brent Event Foundation to help make the Sixth Annual Brent Event a success. The Brent Event was held on October 8, 2016 at Memorial Park, in Sugar Land, Texas.  The 10K, 5K races are on a USATF Certified course, followed by the 1 mile run/walk, with an “After Race” party. The celebration includes music, food and festivities with a bounce house and activities for children. This year’s goal is to raise $50,000 to go directly to help cancer patients and their families.

The Brent Event was created to honor Brent Weaver, a lifelong resident of Sugar Land, Texas, who battled Ewing’s Sarcoma, a rare type of bone cancer. Brent grew up the eldest of five children and was newly married when he contracted the disease. Brent loved the outdoors, physical activities and the Boy Scouts. He strongly believed in giving back to the community. Brent, a graduate of Brigham Young University, took a two-year break from his education to serve at a church mission in Guadalajara, Mexico.

After a long fight with cancer, which included chemotherapy, a leg amputation, and 2 lung surgeries, in 2011 Brent lost his fight to the disease. During his battle, he wanted to accomplish two things to help other people in his situation: write a book about his experiences and establish a foundation. He finished the book, “26 Rounds for Kelly,” a few weeks before his death. The foundation was established in his honor in 2012.

Since its establishment, the foundation has held an annual “Brent Event” to raise money, and has financially helped numerous cancer patients and their families.
