A quote from Lynn’s fundraising page: “On July 19, 2015, I walked this event just 4 days after my final chemo infusion and, as I crossed the finish line surrounded by a team of 44 family members and friends, I put on my SURVIVOR t-shirt! What an emotional moment! It is my hope that on July 15, 2018, I will be able to do the same and hope that you too will join me.” You can also volunteer with the SummeRun & Walk on the day of with set up, water stations, etc.
