THINKCURE SAYS:
Hello Team ThinkCure! Thank …
Hello Team ThinkCure!
Thank you so much for choosing to run the 2012 Big 5K or LA Marathon with us—we're so happy to have your support and partnership in raising awareness and funds to help bring about an end to cancer. Connect with your fellow amazing fundraisers and check overall Team progress by visiting our Crowdrise page at www.crowdrise.com/thinkcurelamarathon2012.
All of us have been touched in some way by cancer, and many of us are running in honor of someone we love. Suzy Rucobo is on our team and shared with me this story about her father that I’d like to share with you:
“March 17, 1993 is a date that will be ingrained in my memory forever. On that date my dad Manuel Rucobo lost his battle with cancer. He suffered from a malignant inoperable brain and battled with it for over 10 years and ultimately lost the battle at the age of 46. I have a lot of fond memories of my dad. He was a big baseball fan and loved taking the family to see the Dodgers play. It was a great time for Dodger baseball it was the early 80’s and the peak of Fernando mania. It is because of those outings as a child that I developed the love of baseball and now bleed Dodger blue.”

Suzy ran her first 5K in 2010 and raised money for ThinkCure! in his memory. She says, “It is a great way for me to pay tribute to him while raising money to help find a cure. As long as I am physically able to run I will continue running and raising money in his honor. This year the race happens to fall on the 19th anniversary of his passing and I can’t think of a better way of celebrating his life.”
Stay tuned! We'll keep you posted with regular news, info and fundraising ideas to help you on your journey. We are putting up Suzy’s picture from the race last year on crowdrise today. Send us your stories and we will share them with the team.
Thanks for your efforts everyone!
