Laurens Fight for Cure
Lauren and I live in the same town (Lawrenceburg, IN). She is 19 years old and was diagnosed last year with DIPG. DIPG is a cancer of the brain with a 0% survival rate that afflicts predominantly young children. Lauren is not expected to survive until the end of the year.
Lauren is a student and basketball player at the College of Mount St. Joe in Cincinnati, Ohio. She will be participating in her first and only college game on Sunday November 2nd.
On Saturday, I will be running the IMM (Indianapolis Monumental Marathon) in Lauren’s Honor. My goal is to raise $22,000. I chose this amount because it was Lauren's uniform number in high school. I have included the link below for the web site with additional information.
I found out recently at our board meeting that one of our former club Presidents - Nick Greco passed away last Friday September 19. Nick was President of the Runners’ Club of Greater Cincinnati in the early to mid 90’s. He will be missed. In lieu of flowers, you can make a donation to the Countryside YMCA and Hospice of Cincinnati. To leave a condolence, please visit tuftsschildmeyer.com.

The city's second oldest race is back. With as many names(Memorial Day Race, Memorial Run, Memorial Day Run, Fork in the Road, Clifton Classic, Conquest de Clifton, RCGC River Run) through the years as Liz Taylor marriages, this years edition is known as Memorial Day Race 38.

The Runners’ Club of Greater Cincinnati would like to thank the volunteers that helped out at the Club's Flying Pig Fluid Station at Mile 22.2. Their contribution of handing out water and Gatorade, cheering, and picking up trash made the fluid station another rousing success . Their dedication and enthusiasm made a great impression on the participants.
A special thank to Tom and Julia Glasscock for coordinating the fluid station for 2014 and for Stacy Osborne for providing the music and willing to take requests like the Sex Pistols and The Clash.
