Fun Run Information

The original Tox 'N Purge run was created by Dr. Karla Moore in 1997 for the Salt Lake City meeting. In addition to her involvement in the field of toxicology and participation in SOFT, she was an officer in the United States Air Force. After her passing in 2008, the run was memorialized in her honor. The proceeds from the run go to the American Cancer Society.  Expenses for the event are supported by our SOFT exhibitors.
