Due to the continuous changing guidelines and restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic we have been experiencing these past few months it has been very hard to pinpoint a way for us to host the 5K/1Mile walk event as we have done the past two years and we don’t want to stop now! So this year we are asking you to run or walk on your own. Grab the family, a friend, run it alone or get together in a small group and RUN in Lea’s Memory!!!  We would love to have everyone run on September 20th or anytime for the next 11 days which would be thru September 30th.  To add some fun, post your pictures and time to you the Photo fun – Lea Fitz Facebook page. 

50% of the proceeds will be donated to METAvivor* and 50% of the proceeds will be used to fund 3 scholarships in Lea’s memory (Oakcrest, Overbrook and Eastern High Schools).  

*METAvivor is led by volunteers, most of whom are living with metastatic breast cancer. We work to obtain grants and corporate sponsors to support our operational expenses. This allows us to ensure that donations can be entirely dedicated to our research grants that fund the cutting edge research that will ultimately save lives. Unless otherwise specified by the donor, 100% of every donation and 100% of proceeds from every fundraiser (after event expenses) goes into our research grants. http://www.metavivor.org/

Lea held a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Coastal Carolina University and a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Rowan University. Lea was a dedicated teacher and educator. She enjoyed sharing her passion with students and adults each day. Lea enjoyed facilitating many workshops and various conferences, as well as her work with Princeton University’s Molecular Outreach Program for teachers.
