Hi everyone, my name is Brian Lauria.
I am 22 years old from Floral Park, New York. I am currently a senior at the Fashion Institute of Technology. I work at Vineyard Vines as a Retail Visual Creative Coordinator based out of the corporate office in Stamford, CT.
In April of 2019, I will be running alongside a team of 100 runners in the Boston Marathon on the Mass General Hospital Pediatric Hematology Oncology team. I am running in memory of Mary Ruchalski. I met Mary shortly before she was diagnosed with a rare form of pediatric cancer. Mary touched the lives of so many and continues to inspire her peers and athletes all over. She has inspired me to always put my best foot forward and continue to be the best version of myself. I couldn't be more excited to be teamed up with the Mass General Hospital on the Pediatric Cancer team to fund the research behind the amazing doctors who are trying to find the cure to these diseases that take the lives of some of the most influential people that have touched this earth.
I want to thank you in advance for any and every donation towards my goal. donation is too small. It truly means a lot and I know together we can continue to fight to end cancer! Stay tuned for the road to the marathon!
