LPC's Winning Team at Myeloma Race for All Cancers!

Last Sunday we participated in the AZ Myeloma Race for Hope for All Cancers. Six of us walked. Two of us ran the 5K and George and Kathryn offered free chair massages to all participants, volunteers and guests. We sported our new LPC team shirts and each member was treated to healthy snacks including rice meal bars and Endura rehydration electrolyte drink. We made them ditch the powerade received in their free event tote bags!

Congratulations to Alex K who placed 3rd in his category in the 5K and to Chris W who ran his personal 5K best that day! The spirit and energy was just as strong as last year. Great Sponsors! Enthusiastic racers and hardworking volunteers who put such a wonderful event together, despite the early chill and strong morning winds. Special thanks to George and Kathryn for their amazing treatments and the Wilson family who participated and allowed us to borrow their portable table. And of course Barbara Kavanagh the founder of AZ Myeloma Network and event chairperson for her remarkable passion and drive to bring awareness and support to all Myeloma Cancers!
