Charity Beneficiary:

Live Run Give LLC is a race production company founded in 2019. We founded our company on the principal of bringing families and friends together for fitness and food while giving back to our community. We are committed to supporting breast cancer research and organizations that help give support to breast cancer patients. Each year, we select 2-3 not for profits to be charity beneficiaries of our races.


Charity Beneficiary:

METAvivor is dedicated to the specific fight of women and men living with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer. At the time of METAvivor’s founding, no organization was dedicated to funding research for the disease and no patient groups were speaking out about the dearth of stage 4 cancer research.  While more and more people have taken up the cry for more stage 4 research, METAvivor remains the sole US organization dedicated to awarding annual stage 4 breast cancer research.

As Always, in honor of my Lynette!
In honor of my grandmothers and aunts
and all the women and co-survivors that have been affected by Stage 4 cancer.
