EVENT: Honda LA Marathon 2012

EVENT DATE: Mar 17, 2012

Suzy Rucobo


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.
In 2010 I ran my first LA 5K and raised money for Think Cure in his memory. It is a great way for me to pay tribute to him while raising money to help find a cure. 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.

Please help me reach my goal of rasing $250 for Think Cure. Any amount is appreciated.
