BENEFITING: NEGU|Jessie Rees FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Nov 08, 2014
Laura Cook passed away in 2014 after a 15 month battle with cancer (sarcoma). Laura was a devoted wife and mother with a feisty zest for life. She loved running and was passionately involved with the Jessie Rees Foundation, a world-wide organization whose mission is to ensure that “every child fighting cancer has the support and resources they need,” and to “Never, Ever Give Up!”
In 2012, Laura spearheaded a group of friends from Orange County, California to run the Santa Barbara International Marathon/Half-Marathon. In two years, this group of runners has grown. And although Laura is no longer with us, her friends plan to run in her honor with hopes of inspiring others to donate to the Jessie Rees Foundation, Laura’s beloved charity – NEGU!
