May 4-5 Vogt ran through Sacramento, Folsom and Elk Grove as part of his Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Man of the Year program.
“It has been nearly 10 years since our kids were in elementary school, yet it seems like just yesterday we heard that two of their young classmates were suddenly gone, taken by leukemia,” Vogt writes on his Website. ” … That’s why when the phone rang and I was asked be a candidate for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Man of the Year, there was only one answer that I could possibly give … YES.”
To support Vogt, Ty Russell with the Coldwell Banker office in Placerville ran the last 50 miles through the night.
