Seeks sponsors for cancer research 5K
On Sunday, Aug. 18, Cold Spring residents, Krista Manzoeillo, Melissa Scanga, Sophia Scanga, Katie DeMarco, Kim Giachinta and Donna Pidala, also known as team Proud Mary, will participate in the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation 5K at Yankee Stadium. For the fourth year in a row, the team will participate in this challenging event. Proud Mary was formed in honor of Mary Manzoeillo who bravely fought, but lost her battle with cancer in January 2011. Team members continue to run in memory and support of all the loved ones they have lost and those who continue to battle this horrible disease.
If you would like to join Proud Mary at Yankee Stadium or support their efforts by making a donation, visit runyon5k.kintera.org/proudmary. Support is greatly appreciated. All funds raised will be used by the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation to fund innovative research by today’s most brilliant young scientists, who are racing to find the causes and cures for all types of cancer.
