BENEFITING: Lynn Sage Foundation
EVENT DATE: Oct 15, 2016
I am running the Melbourne Marathon in 2 weeks and raising money for the Lynn Sage Foundation in honor of my friend, the superhero Vickie Shlensky. Vickie is a mother, wife, sister, doctor, camp director and friend. I met her on a soccer field 16 years ago. She's a superhero.
The Lynn Sage Foundation are committed to raising funds for breast cancer research until the cure is found. It was founded in honor and memory of Lynn Sage by her family in 2003. Lynn Sage was a beloved mother, daughter and wife who tragically died at the age of 39 as a result of her battle with breast cancer. Dedicated to finding a cure for this disease, The Foundation raises over $350,000 annually to support The Lynn Sage Scholars program, funding some of the United States' most promising researchers in the field of breast cancer.
