Bob Geier was just 52 years old when he was
diagnosed with Stage IV Esophageal Cancer in January 2011 and lost his battle four short months later.
Bob's children wanted to find a way to honor their father's memory and raise awareness about this devastating disease. Because daughter Kayla is a runner and Bob always had a smile on his face, the Smiles for Bob 5K was born.
