TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Two Topeka schools are teaming up to help a kindergartner with brain cancer.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that Karis Selk, a kindergartener at Randolph Elementary School, was diagnosed at age 5 with a common type of childhood brain cancer. Karis recently began radiation therapy to her brain and spine along with weekly chemotherapy.

A 5k race will be held Friday at Eisenhower Middle School, where Karis' mother, Stephanie Selk, is a nurse.

Entry fees for the run are $10 per person or $25 per family. Events will include the fun run/walk, raffle prizes and T-shirt sales, and all proceeds go to the Selk family to help with medical expenses.
