About This Activity

This year is the 3rd annual We Never Stop Fighting 5K In Loving Memory of Marilyn T. Krom. The event starts at 11:00 AM @ Eastford Elementary School.

This year's event is In Loving Memory of Michelle Lagasse. On March 19th, 2013, Michelle was diagnosed with invasive mammary carcinoma, triple negative breast cancer while pregnant her forth child. This day forever changed the lives of the entire Lagasse family. As Michelle struggled to fight for her life, it became apparent to her doctors that at 31 weeks pregnant it was time for her beautiful baby to be born. On August 2nd, 2013, Savannah was born and both she and Michelle were transferred to intensive care.
On August 30th, 2013 Michelle lost her battle with cancer at the very young age of 34.
After 6 weeks in the ICU, baby Savannah was able to go home to her family. However, her father Danny was unable to... work while he stayed home to care for her.
Danny is a single parent providing for his four children. He is thankfully able to work again but now must support the immense cost of child care as well as his family's day-to-day needs.
Our goal is to help Danny and his family in this time of need. All proceeds from the We Never Stop Fighting 5k In Loving Memory of Marilyn T. Krom will be donated to the Lagasse family.

Thank you in advance for your support!
