An effort to benefit St. Jude Children’s Hospital with an inaugural McMinnville Fall Crawl 5K run now includes an ironic twist for event organizer Joshua Crain.“I had an unanticipated surgery last Wednesday,” said Crain. “Now I’m waiting on lab results to tell me whether or not I have cancer.”McMinnville Fall Crawl will be held Saturday, Oct. 29 at 3 p.m. in downtown McMinnville. The event is being organized by Crain, his wife Ashly, and Main Street McMinnville.The cruel twist of organizing a race to benefit cancer research for children and facing a possible adult diagnosis is not lost on Crain.“The irony of me facing the possibility of cancer while trying to put together a race to raise money for children’s cancer research and treatment is amazing,” he said.
