B+: Linda's 2016 Damon Runyon Fundraising Page
B positive. This is more than just a motto for my honoree of this year’s 5k. I have known Franca for a decade now. We met on a project at work and had been in touch on an off until recently where we had the opportunity to work side by side again. Four years ago, Franca learned of her cancer diagnosis and had undergone many different treatments. With advancements in medicine, she is cancer free today! Some of Franca’s greatest qualities are her lightheartedness and desire to always B+. She has shown such tenacity and grit in her fight and her ability to B+ throughout. I look forward to running many more k’s with Franca’s encouragement.
2016 marks the 7th year that the Louie's have participated as runners and volunteers for this amazing event where 100% of money raised is used by the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation to fund the groundbreaking work of some of the most promising young scientists, who are racing to find the causes and cures for all types of cancer. With your help Team Louie has raised over $25,000 in the past 6 years. Help us reach our $5,000 goal for this year’s event.
The Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation 5K at Yankee Stadium is a unique fundraising run/walk that uses the Stadium as its course. I'll get to explore the concourses and ramps, climb stairs between levels, and take my own victory laps around the warning track that circles the field.
Progress against cancer is a must! Please join my team or make a donation to give hope those are on a journey to wellness and continuing to B+ or in memory of loved ones lost.
