Compete 4 CMV
Team Member: Chris Spytek
Fred and I will be participating in the Lapham Peak 10K on Oct 3rd in Delafield, WI as part of the 'Compete 4 CMV' initiative, to honor our granddaughter Evelyn Grace. As you likely know, we lost beautiful Evie last December from complications arising from a necessary surgery, she was just 21 months old. The surgery became necessary for Evelyn as a result of viral infection called 'Cytomegalovirus' or 'CMV' that she acquired while in utero.
What is Compete 4 CMV?
