In Loving Memory of our daughter, Andrea McGuinness Creekmore
The first time I heard about GYRIG 5 K run/walk was this time last year. Our daughter Andrea had joined Marlee’s Team last year, and it would have been the first year for Andrea to participate in the event. Andrea met Marlee through mutual friends, and like Marlee, was diagnosed with Colon Cancer Stage 4. Andrea and Marlee formed a strong bond, and good friendship. Marlee is a success story in the fight against cancer, and that immediately gave us all more hope for Andrea.
Andrea was looking forward to that race, but she passed just a few days before the race, after a thirteen month graceful and courageous battle with the cancer. Andrea passed at the young age of 37, leaving behind a wonderful husband and beautiful 16 month old son.
I'm participating in the 2017 Get Your Rear In Gear 5K Run/Walk, an event to benefit the Colon Cancer Coalition. I want to make a difference for the thousands of people in our community touched by colon cancer. The funds I raise will stay right here, helping with prevention, early detection and treatment for this disease.
Please support my efforts to build hope and beat colon cancer! Thank you in advance for your help.
