BENEFITING: American Cancer Society
EVENT DATE: Aug 16, 2015
Years ago my family lost my grandfather, who we proudly called Banka, to cancer. The memories I have of our time spent together in Falmouth, dancing on his shoes, sneaking ice cream, going mini golfing, and just laughing with him (and at him) are immeasurable. I have decided to start my own race fundraising page in his memory called Team BANKA. All funds raised will go directly to the American Cancer Society.
First up for TEAM BANKA is the Falmouth Road Race of course!
The Famouth Road Race was particularly important to my grandfather and there isn't a year that goes by where I don't think of him during this race. He was our chauffeur to the buses every race morning and would even pick up strangers that he was afraid "wouldn't make it on time." Not only did he organize our morning deptures every year, he directed traffic out of our driveway, gathered everyone for the traditional pre-race photo, and was of course always there post-race ready to celebrate. (There was that one year when cushions were stolen from his deck and he said he hated road race weekend... but I know deep down he really loved it.) This year we run for him and the fight against cancer. Please support us!
