Steph’s Fall 5K – To Remember, Reward and Inform
For a second consecutive year Steph’s Fall 5K runners, walkers and community members came out to support education and raise awareness about colon cancer. The event is held to honor the life and memory of Stephanie Godri-Johnston, an avid runner, active volunteer and dedicated mother, who – after a 16-month battle with colon cancer – lost her life in May 2012 at the age of 32.
This year, proceeds from Steph’s Fall 5K will support the Colon Cancer Alliance’s new Screening Assistance Program. This upcoming program, to launch in March 2014, will address financial barriers associated with screening. The Godri and Johnston families recognize the importance of screening and are committed to spreading awareness and bettering the odds for those in need. To top it all off, Steph’s Fall 5K surpassed last year’s total and raised an impressive $2,000!
Thank you to the Godri and Johnston families for their continued hard work and dedication. We can’t wait to work with Steph’s Fall 5K in 2014! If you have an interesting idea for a fundraiser, please contact Alison Ornitz at 202-628-0123 ex. 109 for more information.
