HERE COMES YOUR MOTHER - YOU BETTER RUN
This race will be held on Sunday, May 12th and will support four different women in our community that have battled with various forms of CANCER. Some of these wonderful women are not with us any longer but others are still on their own JOURNEY.
Join us on Mother's Day, May 12th for HERE COMES YOUR MOTHER- YOU BETTER RUN. This 5K Walk/Run and 10K (RUN ONLY) will take place at 8:30am (10K) and 9am (5K). The race will take place at the Pembroke Police Boys Club - 140 Center Street, Pembroke, MA.
Here Comes Your Mother - You better RUN will support four different women and their journey through their battle with Cancer. This race will be split evenly among the four families and ALL money will be to help raise awareness about these women and their battles. Here are the wonderful women:
SANDRA'S JOURNEY - Sandra Horvath lost her battle with Stage 4 Metastatic Breast Cancer this past January. Sandra's husband Mike is committed to keeping Sandra's Journey ALIVE. Sandra was a gift to us all.
LOGAN'S LEGACY - Patty and Doug Logan - Patty Logan lost her battle with Breast Cancer in 1985 and shortly there after Doug lost his battle with Esophageal Cancer. These two wonderful parents loved and supported their daughters Erika Logan-Keefe and Mandy Logan wholeheartedly. Erika and Mandy are committed to supporting other families battling cancer because they were left orphaned at such a young age.
TEAM CHERALYN - Cheralyn Froio - Cheralyn Froio, the wife of Braintree firefighter Jonathan Froio, and her fight with leukemia.
Cheralyn, 37, hadn’t been feeling well for about a week before she saw her primary care doctor April 27, 2012 because she thought she had a virus. The doctor theorized that she had leukemia by the level of her white cell count.
As it turned out, while a normal person has between 4,000 and 11,000 white cells, Cheralyn had 48,000. She was rushed to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, where she was diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) and began chemotherapy.
Cheralyn wasn’t released from the hospital until May 30,2012 when she came home to Jonathan and her three sons (Tim, 17, who is autistic, Jonathan, 14, and Brandon, 11) in Braintree knowing that she would have to be readmitted for in-patient chemotherapy treatment at some point in mid-to-late June, 2012.
GIRLS ON THE GO - We will be supporting one of our "GIRLs" that is battling Multiple Myeloma. All of our money will be going to Beth Israel Hosptial in reference to Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation – MMRF is an incurable form of Blood Cancer. All money will go to hospitals and research as directed by our GIRL and her family. Learn more: http://themmrf.org/
Support all of these women in our community and let their journey continue.
