“I lost my wife, Linzi, to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma on her birthday, September 18, 2015. I have no regrets about our time together or the choices we made leading up to her departure from this world, but my hopes are that we may help to find a better way to treat lymphoma, a type of cancer that hardly gets the same attention and research as its deadly associates.Perhaps one day, little girls like my Lila won’t have to grow up without their mommy. Perhaps one day, husbands such as myself and families such as mine and hers, won’t have to deal with the weight of such a loss. Perhaps one day, we’ll find a cure to lymphoma.”
“This is a 5K race to help raise money for Lymphoma Research. We want to do what we can to help find a cure for lymphoma, to honor Linzi, and to help others suffering from this disease.”
This race is also the second race of the North Mississippi Race Series
