"In memory of Laura Jean Stankiewicz"
A grassroots, giving project, encompassing generosity, charity and kindness. Creating events and fundraising opportunities for people and organizations in our community that touch the lives of individuals in need. We are working towards creating funding resources, event organization and a fundraising platform to motivate and inspire people in our community to create a movement of their own. If you know someone or something that could use a helping hand, we want to hear about it. Nominate them by contacting us with quick snapshot of their story and how you think we could help.
Cancer touches many of our lives in so many ways, forms and outcomes. On August 31, 2020 we lost my Mother, Laura Jean Stankiewicz, to the battle against cancer. I feel like I have been given an opportunity, a path for hope, a way to give back. I hope to inspire, to give, and to show people that they can make a difference, big or small, that can have a lasting impact on so many lives, families and individuals. Running has given me so much throughout this chapter in my story, so I feel like it is time for me to give back. Join me in this journey and make a MOVE 4 someone in your life.
