In Honor of My Mom

BENEFITING: SUSAN G KOMEN Pittsburgh
ORGANIZER: SUSAN G KOMEN Pittsburgh
EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2017
EVENT DATE: May 07, 2017
After an eight year battle with breast cancer, my Mother, Linda Wrono Gehrling passed away on July 25, 2016. She showed immense strength, joy, and courage throughout her battle. In her honor and memory, I'll be running the 2017 Pittsburgh Half Marathon to raise money for the Susan G. Komen foundation. To run a half marathon, I only need a fraction of the strength with which my Mom fought cancer.
