Please join in our 21st annual fundraising event in honor of Brian Rooney. After 18 successful years of the Brian Rooney Run/Walk in Central Park we changed venues two years ago and renamed the event the Brian Rooney Sit, Sip & Play. We are still raising money in Brian's name for a great cause -- research for a cure for lymphoma -- we just do less running and more sitting & sipping. Over the past 20 years, the event raised more than $375,000 and the Lymphoma Foundation has distributed these funds in Brian's name for use in lymphoma research. NEW: Dr. Mortimer Lacher, the president of the Foundation, and Diana Lacher, have decided to take their well-deserved retirement, so the Lymphoma Foundation is closing its doors. Therefore, we have decided to now raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
The Brian Rooney event is held each spring in memory of Brian, who died at age 32 from non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Brian was a lawyer, avid runner, prankster extraordinaire and a wonderful son, brother, cousin and friend. We hope that by raising money to help defeat lymphoma that others will not have to miss their loved one as much as we miss Brian.
Please come out and help find a cure for lymphoma!
