THE STORY:

This will be my fifth time running the marathon for the Lemieux Foundation. It has been an honor and a privilege to run for such a wonderful cause. My mother succombed to cancer in 2012, and not a day goes by that I don't think of her and work my hardest to make her proud. She was there for my first marathon, going through exhaustive chemo threatments, smiling and cheering me on, even though I know she was in so much pain. I run this for the Lemieux Foundation every year in memory of her, and in hopes of finding a cure for this terrible disease. I lost my best friend and the greatest person I've ever known, but I know she's with me, every step of the way.

Anything that you could donate would be greatly appreciated! I continually thank you for your support and generosity--it means the world to me. Leggo.

The Mario Lemieux Foundation is dedicated to raising funds for cancer research and patient care, as well as Austin’s Playroom Project, an initiative that creates playrooms for children and families in medical facilities.  The Mario Lemieux Foundation was created in 1993 by hockey legend Mario Lemieux. In that year, Mario was enjoying the greatest season of his brilliant career and on pace to establish a new NHL scoring record. Then he was diagnosed with Hodgkin's disease.

 

After a successful battle with Hodgkin's, Mario is now 22 years cancer free and his experience led him to focus on ways to assist those not so fortunate. He devotes much of his time to the Foundation raising funds to help reach the ultimate goal: a cure for cancer.
