Staff Photo: Jonathan Phillips. Ansley Arnette, a seventh-grader at Twin Rivers Middle School, sits in the golf cart that will lead her out front of the 5K in her honor Saturday as Rob Goldsmith, the race coordinator, neighbor and family friend who came up with the idea stands next to her Tuesday. Ansley, 12, has been diagnosed with a diffuse infiltrating astrocytoma, a rare form of cancer that stretches across half of her brain. The 5K and fun run, dubbed "Scamper Against Cancer for Our Dancer" will be held at Coolray Field in Lawrenceville and will help Ansley's family cope with the mounting medical bills from her twice monthly chemotherapy treatments.

Ansley Arnette will lead the way around the Coolray Field parking lot Saturday morning, riding in a golf cart bedecked in boas and bearing a sign that reads "Driving Miss Ansley." Hundreds of competitors will hoe a tougher road behind her, running, jogging or otherwise struggling through a 5K on foot.
