Team LukePatti Kirk, a Chicago Marathon runner, has a special inspiration this year. Her 8 year old cousin, Luke, was diagnosed with a PLGA brain tumor and Patti is running in his honor and raising funds to support children’s brain tumor research. Patti admits, ‘I’m never speedy, but thanks to the kindness and generosity of family and friends, I’ve been able to raise some money for this very important cause’. Patti’s efforts are a testament to the notion that together we CAN make a difference…”I wish I could do more to help Luke and other kids in his situation, but I know the money raised will be added to other contributions and together will have an impact on this disease.”
