Hi! Thank you for coming to the Team Hakim Fundraising page!
Meet Team Hakim's members:
Jill Boterus: The incredible experience of running last year's NYC marathon with Project Purple in Mikey's honor as my first full marathon turned out to be infectious. I am thrilled to announce that Precilla Alcantara, (soon to marry my brother, David), is running this year as her first marathon!
Losing my Step-Dad, Michael Hakim (Papu), last summer to Pancreatic Cancer was and still is, simply devastating. So vibrant, fun, fit, handsome and loving, at 75 years young, he was taken from my Mom and us far too early. I continue running to beat Pancreatic Cancer with Project Purple to heal my heart and help the cause. Please donate today as we train for this year's NYC Marathon in Mikey/Papu's honor. Our entire family thanks you deeply.
Precilla Alcantara: I’m so excited to be a part of the Project Purple team. I’m running in memory of Michael Hakim and all others who are battling this deadly disease. Running the NYC Marathon has always been a dream of mine and I just can't wait to make it through the finish line. Please join us in fighting this disease and thank you all from the bottom of my heart for contributing to this cause.
Brooke Boterus: Hi! My Papu,(Michael Hakim) died of pancreatic cancer in the late summer, 2015. I miss him sooooo much. I wish he was still here. I am helping Mommy and Aunt Precilla get donations for him. I want to run with Mommy one day. He'd be proud.
Lindsay Boterus: I miss my papu sooooooooooooo bad. He is still always gunna be with us. I will be helping my Mommy and Aunt Precilla get donations this year and when I am older, I want to run a marathon like Mommy.
