The award ceremony has been moved back to the YMCA and will be held once all participants have returned to the gym. All winners must be present to receive their award.

This event is a fundraiser to help support Free ME from Lung Cancer's mission ~ research, help uninsured high risk patients get access to early detection via low dose CT scans, help single family low income homeowners get access to radon air abatement systems and patient support.
