Breathe for Life – 5K Run/Walk for Lung Cancer Awareness

So this morning was the Breathe for Life-Lung Cancer Awarenes  5K Run/Walk. The day started with Team WillPower, running and walking in support of my son’s brother in law Will Marris, gathering on the steps of the Please Touch Museum in Fairmount Park in Philly. Around 8:00 the festivities began with the announcement of the awards for the Teams that raised the most money. WMGK’s Andre Gardner served as the MC. The top three teams raised around $17-19,000! Our Team Willpower raised around $1,925! Between the staff of the Riverside Schools and folks at my work I (we) raised $335.00 of the total on my page! Thanks to All!  6 ABC”s consumer report Nydia Han who had done a week long report on Lung Cancer then spoke about the survivors she had interviewed including Will and several others. Han also spoke about losing her mother to lung cancer two years ago making today’s event all the more special for her. read more
