Hunter Bork Loses Battle With Cancer

Hunter Bork, the Mount Vernon native and Dakota Wesleyan University
track star who lost his leg to cancer, has lost his battle with the disease.  Doctors recently found tumors on the 23-year old Bork’s neck and spine.  Bork lost his left leg to a cancerous bone tumor when he was 18.  He trained and competed in the 100 meter dash in his freshman season and again in the 2010-11 season with the DWU track team.  Bork set the American record for high jump at the U.S. Paralympics Championships in 2011 with a mark of 4 feet 10.5 inches.  Funeral services for Hunter Bork are pending.
