Supporting: 2022 5.44K - Be a Cancer Hero for Lazarex Cancer Foundation

My Team: Team Theberge

We are raising funds in loving memory of my generous, kind, and strong dad. We miss him every day, and believe this is a wonderful way to honor him - helping others gain access to clinical trials to extend and improve their time after a cancer diagnosis. Various clinical trials helped do this for my dad and we had many good days after his diagnosis with Stage IV prostate cancer in 2018 - such as our trip to Europe in February 2020.  We had a great time in the Alps as pictured here.

 

He was the most patient person I know, beyond resilient, and always, always had a positive outlook. I know he would be happy that through the work at Lazarex, others may be given a better chance against cancer.  Please consider joining my mom, Matt, Petra, and me for this 5.44K on April 23 - note it is virtual, so you can take part anywhere and in any fashion (walk, run, swim, etc.). I plan to paddleboard the distance! 

 

If you do choose to participate, please select Team Theberge when you sign up and be sure to say a cheers to Dan on April 23 with a nice glass of red wine or a cold beer after. I can't think of a better belated gift for our birthday (my Dad and me--April 12) than having all our family and friends – furry ones included – doing an activity together around the world in his honor. Thank you in advance for your support and feel free to pass this along to anyone you think may want to join.

The Lazarex 5.44K is a fundraising activity (walk, run, cycle, swim, etc.) that you can do anywhere, in your neighborhood. DON'T LET SOCIAL DISTANCING GET YOU DOWN!  The 5.44K is a great way to be active and contribute to a great cause! Help cancer patients continue to travel to their treatments for the best outcome possible. WHY 5.44K? We chose 5.44K (3.38 miles) because our patients travel an average of 544 miles RT for their cancer treatments.  Your participation will raise funds for the programs and patients of Lazarex Cancer Foundation


REASONS TO DO THE Lazarex 5.44K: Especially now we need to ensure that the cancer patients we serve can continue to afford to get to their treatments. Lazarex eases the financial burden of the out of pocket costs for travel to clinical trials for each patient. We rely on public funding to be able to provide this service.
