Run For Paula
Organized by: Colleen Seymour
EVENT DATE Aug 22, 2015
Recently I received news that our dear family friend, Paula Palmieri, has been diagnosed with Stage 4 Breast Cancer. The Palmieri's have been close friends of ours for years and were instrumental in assisting my family when my mother was diagnosed with colon cancer. From bringing over meals, to helping maintain my mother's garden, the Palmieri's were present as friends and supporters during a very difficult time in our lives. Inspired by their kindness and support, I hope to do the same for them in their hour of need.
Paula is a strong, beautiful, and caring woman. She is an active and cherished member in the Old Saybrook, CT, community, whether it be in youth services, Grounds For Kids, OSHS musicals, sports, or serving up ice cream at James' Pharmacy. In honor of her, I am running the Runapalooza Half Marathon in Arvada, CO. Money raised for this event will go to the Palmeri's to help aid in whatever way needed, whether that be medical expenses, transporation, etc. Please help me reach my goal and make a donation.
