Let’s make sure everyone can benefit from healthy lungs.
I am Running to represent all those who suffer from lung disease, especially those who are close to my heart. You can support me in my efforts just by donating. Your generosity would mean a lot to me and all those who benefit from the work of the American Lung Association.
Last year, my sister, nephew, and I ran in this race in honor of my mother who had just been diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer. Unfortunately, she passed at the end of January of this year. So we will be running again this October in memory of her now. This race is extremely important to us, as it raises money and awareness for those with lung diseases. Let's show Julie support still even though she may not physically be with us, she is always with us in our hearts ! We love you, Mom!
*Last years excerpt: We are running in honor of Julie Bossard, my mother, who was recently diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic lung cancer among other lung diseases and health issues. My nephew, Jack, and I have always had a passion for running.. we find it fitting to do this for Julie as a way to show her our support !*
