Hello Family & Friends - I am again asking for your support for the 5th annual event of the Chaz Raucci Memorial Foundation. I started this charity 5 years ago to honor and remember our friend who we lost to gun violence going on 14 years ago. We have now held 3 golf outings and last year we ran the Tough Mudder to raise money in Chaz's name. As a result of these efforts and the overwhelming support from all of you, to date we have raised over $20,000 for various local charities. This year we will be running the Tough Mudder on Sept 10, 2017 for the second consecutive year! Right now we have a team of 6 brave souls that have committed themselves to the cause and are ready to conquer the course!
This year we will be donating to The Mario Lemieux Foundation, and no this is not just because the Penguins have won back to back Stanley Cups! The Mario Lemiuex Foundation is dedicated to raising funds for cancer research and patient care, as well as Austin's Playroom Project, an initiative that creates playrooms for children and families in medical facilities. Since 1998, the Lemieux Foundation has given over $23 million to cancer research and patient care initiatives in the Pittsburgh Region and beyond. Please donate now to support our run, remember our friend, and continue to help in the fight against cancer - a disease that touches us all... Thank you in advance from the bottom of my heart for your support! - Kevin
