Pittsburgh Marathon in Memory of Christina Radzilowicz
For the fifth year, Carolyn Newkirk is running the Pittsburgh Marathon in memory of her daughter’s friend’s mother, Christina Radzilowicz, who lost her battle to ovarian cancer in 2013.
Over the last four years, friends, family, and colleagues helped raise over $8,500 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 2017 Pittsburgh Marathon is on May 7th 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 Designate Your Gift, select “Gynecologic Cancer” and in the comments portion, please enter “In memory of Christina Radzilowicz”.
