Please join or support our team! Lorie and Valerie are looking forward to the Donna Half Marathon this year. Valerie was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer in February, 2003 at the age of 46. She had lumpectomy surgery, six rounds of chemotherapy and 30 radiation treatments. Her treatment was covered by health insurance. When you donate to this special cause you will be helping women and men who do not have insurance.
We participate because 1 out of 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Approximately 40,000 people die every year from this disease.
We walk the half marathon in memory of: Virginia Lumbres (our aunt), Joan Dallavia, Brenda Smith, Debbie Cook Williford, and Doug Pitts. Doug is Van Russell's best friend and he passed away in May, 2018. We miss and love you Doug!
We walk in honor of: Susan Faith Gajo (our sister) Stephanie Marty, Virginia Paley and Barbara Langdon
This year Valerie will be celebrating 16 years breast cancer free and we are honored to raise funds. 100% of your donation gives financial assistance to breast cancer patients and continued Mayo research. Thank you for your support!
