Mr. Hunt loved Emily Ransom and her battle with cancer had an effect on him -- and he loved Emily's Power for a Cure, said officials. 

Tucker's Trek was created so his love for this cause and his commitment to raise funds and awareness to fight Neuroblastoma would live on.  

The race/walk begins at 2 p.m. and walk-up registration begins at 1 p.m.

The entry fee is $30 for 5K and one- mile fun run/walk. The entry fee guarantees a T-shirt only to entrants who enter online by Friday, May 9. Online registration will close on Friday, May 9, at noon. Race day registration will be available.

Trophies will be awarded to the two top place finishers (one male and one female); and smaller trophies will be awarded to the male and female winners in each of the following age groups. Medals will also be awarded to the 2nd and 3rd place finishers (male and female)

The 5K course is certified and winds through the Baylor campus through the woods and along the Tennessee River. The event will begin and end at the newly dedicated Tucker Hunt Memorial Lacrosse Field.
