BENEFITING: FRANCES FOUNDATION FOR KIDS FIGHTING CANCER INC
EVENT DATE: APR 29, 2018
In April of 2013 Gwennie Marra was diagnosed with a rare form of pediatric cancer called Neuroblastoma. For 18 months she went through various different treatments trying to cure her. Throughout her battle the Frances Foundation was there to bring smiles to Gwennie and her family. The foundations passion for helping cancer families inspired the Marras to help others struggling with this terrible burden. Although Gwennie endured chemotherapy, radiation, a stem cell transplant and immunotherapy, today she is a happy and healthy 6 year old. Her passion for life amazes us all and was our inspiration to start this fundraiser.
This will be Team Gwennie's 5th year running the NJ Marathon. Our runners consists of friends and family that have spent countless hours training so that they can raise money for The Frances Foundation. They are also running to honor Gwennie, her warrior friends and the angels that we have lost. You can honor them too by donating to one of our Team Gwennie runners. Help us bring smiles to children battling cancer. No amount is too small or too BIG! DONATE TODAY
