Sandy Mitchell taught biology at Western for 28 years but passed away on May 8, 2017, from breast cancer. She was highly revered and loved by Western students and faculty alike. There are many accounts of Sandy having a long-lasting impact on people’s lives.

“Sandy left a lasting impact on our institution and our students. She was an outstanding instructor and scientist, an enthusiastic adventurer and conservationist, and an exceptionally compassionate human being. Sandy is dearly missed, as are other employees who have succumbed to cancer. This race gives us a way to remember, honor, and celebrate their memory,” said Dorothy Harton, Division Chair for Health Sciences at Western.

Sandy was an avid runner. Run with Sandy is a non-profit event that will raise money to be donated to Huntsman Cancer Institute in Salt Lake City to fund cancer research. All donations of any amount are greatly welcomed and appreciated.
