BENEFITING: MARIO LEMIEUX FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: MARIO LEMIEUX FOUNDATION
EVENT: 2018 Pittsburgh Marathon
EVENT DATE: May 06, 2018
Hey guys! This will be my FIFTH half marathon so I thought rather than just running, I would run for cause! I chose to fundraise for the Mario Lemieux Foundation. I love that the funds not only go to cancer patient care, but also toward playrooms in hospitals for the little ones suffering. Read more about the foundation below!
MARIO LEMIEUX FOUNDATION wrote -
The Mario Lemieux Foundation is dedicated to raising funds for cancer research and patient care, as well as Austin’s Playrooms, an initiative that creates playrooms for children and families in medical facilities. The Mario Lemieux Foundation was created in 1993 by hockey legend Mario Lemieux. In that year, Mario was enjoying the greatest season of his brilliant career and on pace to establish a new NHL scoring record. Then he was diagnosed with Hodgkin's disease. After a successful battle with Hodgkin's, Mario is now 24 years cancer free and his experience led him to focus on ways to assist those not so fortunate. He devotes much of his time to the Foundation raising funds to help reach the ultimate goal: a cure for cancer.
