Thank you for visiting our LUNG FORCE team page. My father-in-law, Frank Pimentel (Slinky) passed away in July 2019 from lung cancer. Frank was the life of the party, he always had a smile on his face and always knew how to make people laugh. I didn’t get to spend much time with Frank, but I will always cherish the time we had. His experience with cancer has inspired me to participate in finding a cure. Together, as a team, we are looking forward to participating in this event and we greatly appreciate your support. Our collective efforts will help raise awareness and funds to protect lung health and prevent other families from having to lose their loved ones.
We are currently planning to host our virtual 5k on October 3rd! We will be providing updated information as we determine the details. A personal goal of mine (as long as it's not 90 degrees outside) is to honor Frank with a half marathon.
Your donation and participation, will help support the American Lung Association's research innovation, which leads to early detection for all and better treatments that give everyone a fighting chance.
