Pittsburgh Marathon in Memory of Christina Radzilowicz
For the seventh year, Carolyn Newkirk is running the Pittsburgh Marathon in memory of her daughter’s friend’s mother, Christina Radzilowicz, who passed away from ovarian cancer in 2013.
Over the last six years, friends, family, and colleagues helped raise over $19,244 in Christina’s name while also raising awareness for ovarian cancer research. It means a lot to Christina’s family to honor their wife/mother’s legacy like this. Carolyn also runs to honor Christina’s family.
The 2019 Pittsburgh Marathon is on May 5 and, this year, Carolyn is fundraising for Magee-Womens Research Institute’s research on gynecologic cancer. Magee researchers are working on new screening and prevention tools as well as more efficient treatment for ovarian cancer. Carolyn feels passionate about the research MWRI conducts as well as the patient care at Magee.
Christina was an extraordinary woman, wife, mother, and friend. Please help Carolyn remember her by donating in Christina’s memory. Under Section 2, select “This gift is in memory of” and include Christina’s name and gifts will be designated to Gynecologic Cancer Research.
