“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” – Helen Keller
My family has been participating in this race since 2007, since my husband, Karl Janowski, found out he had lung cancer. He was able to participate twice before he passed away in 2009. My husband loved to have a good time and make people laugh. He was a non-smoker all of his life, and as we found out cancer shows no favortism towards smoking or not. As most of us at this race know, once you find out you have this disease, its already too late. For this reason, we have tried to continue his efforts by bringing as many family and friends to the event every year, and raise as much money as possible. Until a cure is found and a race is no longer necessary, we plan to continue participating and raising money for this event.
Since joining forces with Free to Breathe in 2014, Karl's Klan has raised over $21,000 for lung cancer research! Help us reach $30,000 this year and let's fund even more research!
