With two youngsters leading the way, the 2019 Nebraska Football Road Race was as big as it’s ever been. In terms of participation, no 5k/one-mile fun run has ever been more attended than the one that started on the doorsteps of Memorial Stadium bright and early Sunday morning, July 14. Since pediatric brain cancer patient Jack Hoffman took off on a 69-yard touchdown run in the 2013 Nebraska spring game, the Huskers have been hosting this event every year. They’ve raised over $100,000 with 100 percent of race proceeds going to research at the Buffett Cancer Center at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. Barb and Andrew Koca of Fairmont are shown (above) at the 5k finish line with new Husker Riley Moses.
