BENEFITING: MARIO LEMIEUX FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: MARIO LEMIEUX FOUNDATION
EVENT: 2018 Pittsburgh Marathon
EVENT DATE: May 06, 2018
the 10th Pittsburgh marathon will be my very first marathon. I decided to run for the Mario Lemieux foundation because on April 1, 2016 my boyfriend, Andrew, was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma. After doing a lot of research on people who had survived Hodgkin's I read about Mario. Andrew was one month from his 26th birthday when he was diagnosed. He is now cancer free and we celebrate everyday of that. Until Hodgkin's lymphoma is no longer a problem, we will continue to raise awareness and funds for research. Being a penguins fan, the Mario Le,i.e. us foundation is a perfect charity match for me. I look forward to raising money for this race, and I look forward to representing the foundation.
