The Icla da Silva Foundation's 5th Annual Matchmaker 5K Run/Walk is a fun-filled family-friendly event for people of all ages and abilities. The event will take place on the Firefighters Field, 455 Main Street, Roosevelt Island, NY on Saturday, May 16th, 2015.
Bob's Mustaches are running/walking to support Bob Lohnes - Dad, Husband, Uncle, Grandfather, Scoutmaster, local celebrity and much, much more. The Mustache. Famous. Infamous. You decide.
Bob was diagnosed with Myelodysplastic Syndrome in August 2013. We joined the Matchmaker5k with the hopes of walking together, with Bob, to show him how much we would fight for him, to find a donor for him and rally for him. Sadly, this wasn't meant to be. Two days after we formed our Mustaches, the Greatest Mustache of all passed away on March 15, 2014. We will always honor the Mustache.
You, family and friends will enjoy the views of Manhattan and the East River while supporting patients with leukemia and lymphoma and other diseases treatable with a marrow transplant.
