As many of you know, in 2012 I lost my Uncle Gary to the number one cancer killer in America: lung cancer. After his passing our family wanted to do something in his honor to help raise funds for the horribly underfunded disease that took his life. We created the Schmidt Legacy Foundation and organized our Rise for a Cure event that raised over $100,000 for lung cancer research in its first two years.
Last year, we partnered with our friends at the Addario Lung Cancer Foundation for our third annual 5K event and together raised over $110,000. It was a great success and we have decided to combine efforts again this year. Our goal for 2017 is raise $125,000!
Please join me in the fight against lung cancer and help us raise awareness and funds for the number one cancer killer in America…a disease that impacts young, old, male, female, smokers and non-smokers alike!
Thank you so much for your support!
