About the Kim Kopp Daisy Run:
The Kim Kopp Daisy Run was
created to celebrate and honor the life of Kim Kopp. Kim passed from a
rare form of cancer. Every year her family and friends honor her memory with a 1K Fun Run and 5K Run/Walk in the magnificent
Vail Valley, a place that holds special meaning for Kim and her family as well as in Ken Caryl Ranch, the community that gave so graciously of their time and energy while Kim was battling this disease.
To commemorate Kim's
amazing, yet abbreviated life; to raise money for local families in the
the Valley with a terminally ill parent much like Kim and to raise
awareness about the devastating realities of cervical cancer.
They were Kim's favorite
flowers. The illustrations you see on these pages were drawn by Kim's
children Soren, Allie-Grace, Ethan, and Meghan, now ages 6, 14, 16, and
Please join us in Vail to
run in Kim's memory, cheer on the competitors on course, or by simply
donating to the cause. All proceeds from the Daisy Run will go to the
Kim Kopp Charitable Foundation.
The Kim Kopp Charitable Foundation has been created to help families in the Vail Valley:
- raise money for afflicted families and promote awareness of cervical cancer through the annual Kim Kopp Daisy Run in Vail, CO
- partner with Shaw Cancer Center to identify young families in need of housekeeping services during time of cancer treatments
We'd like to give thanks to all those who have been on this journey with us. In the fall of 2012, Meghan Kopp (Kim's oldest daughter) and Joanne Peterson (Kim's mom) visited St. Joseph Hospital Comprehensive Cancer Center. There they were able to visit with the nurses and staff members and thank them for being so caring and giving to Kim and all the other patients. As a token of gratitude, Joanne worked her magic and made delicious fall cookies.
