The M Family Foundation is pleased to announce the distribution of their first checks to the Founding Honorees. The M Family Foundation was created by the Marcantel, Meury, and McCarthy families to raise awareness and funds for Ovarian & Pediatric
Both Ovarian Cancer & Pediatric Cancers have limited funds dedicat-ed to their research. These are deadly cancers with low survival rates. For the past two years, we have held our Cancer Superhero’s 5k & Family Fun Run to raise money for the Foundation. Our event coordinator, Jill White, was able to make the first 5K a successful event even in the midst of a hurricane. Last year, our 2nd annual event exceeded our expectations with more than 300 participants.
Our Founding Honorees are:
Ovarian Cancer: Rebecca Marcantel, Bridget Mahoney-Jenkins, & Michelle Owens all who lost their lives to ovarian cancer.
Pediatric Cancer: Andrew Rypien, Noah Larson, & TJ Reilly all who lost their lives to cancer.
We are excited to announce this year’s date: September 8th at 7:30am @ Lakeside Park in Celebration! Please visit www.MFamilyFoundation.org for more information and to register for this year’s event!
