Cancer affects everyone in some way throughout life. From a parent, friend, relative, or ourselves it seems everyone knows someone who has been diagnosed with this awful disease. We are a team who will run to save lives, work hard to raise money to find a cure, and do everything in our power to create awareness to put an END to cancer affecting so many lives.
Who's behind team Running for Lives:
Samantha is 28 she is a children's fitness teacher and personal trainer. 5 years ago she made the commitment to change her life through fitness and exercise, but running was never a part of that story. Then 3 years ago her dad got diagnosed with cancer and she found the Zaching Against Cancer foundation and a cause worth running for. Her dad has since kicked cancers ass, but she still runs the race every year to raise awareness and make a difference to put an end to cancer. Follow her journey to the finish line on IG @hlfitnhealthy or on her blog hlfitnhealthy.com
Alexa is 26 and a Graduate Student who made a commitment to a fit and healthy lifestyle 2 years ago. She, like many others, has family and close friends whose lives have been affected by cancer. With Samantha’s encouragement, Alexa decided to sign up for the 2017 ZAC 10K. She is excited to run the 10k for the second time. Follow her journey as she prepares for it IG @lexa_fitnessgram
