About This Activity

Our preschool teacher, friend, and sister of our CEO, Susan Gallagher Colurciello passed away this May 2015 from a 3 year battle with breast cancer. We want to use this event to not only raise money for the Garfield YMCA, Garfield Boilermakers High School Athletics Foundation and Veterans Day Dinner but also donate a large amount to the American Cancer Society this year! We want this walk to be as great as she was as a person. We need this walk/run to be huge to honor her life, her battle, and now her spirit.
