THE STORY:

MARIO LEMIEUX FOUNDATION wrote -


Join Team Lemieux for the 2018 Dick's Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon, win great prizes and help us raise funds for the Mario Lemieux Foundation's cancer research, patient care and Austin's Playrooms initiatives!


The Mario Lemieux Foundation is dedicated to raising funds for cancer research and patient care, as well as Austin’s Playrooms, 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 24 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.
