About this Event: This event is in honor and memory of Gary Schmidt, who passed away of lung cancer November 9, 2012. Gary Schmidt was the best kind of man. He loved his family deeply. He lived his life passionately. He impacted his colleagues with his work ethic and integrity. He was devoted, courageous and full of a spirit that will reamin forever in the hearts he touched. We miss him, and we lost him too soon. This event is for him. It’s for anyone who’s had lung cancer, or has lung cancer. It’s for the family members who’ve lost someone, or are currently caring for someone who’s sick. It’s for hope. It’s for a future where lives are not lost because of lung cancer. Our


Mission: To fund research that improves the quality and length of life for lung cancer patients; to raise hope and find a cure!


Form a Team: Please help us reach our goal by forming a team and gathering others to sponsor or participate with you. If your supporters cannot attend they can still help by donating to your team. Having many teams is the key for us to raise $75,000 or more. We ask that all teams raise at least $500. But don’t stop there...We hope some will raise $1,500, or perhaps even $5,000!


Sponsorship Opportunities: For businesses, there are also sponsorship opportunities. Donate $500+, and your logo will be featured on our Rise for a Cure event t-shirt. Please contact Dawn Schmidt Brookshire at for more details.
