About This Activity
Miles for Missy was created in memory of an amazing teacher, coach, daughter, granddaughter, sister, wife, and friend, Missy Richvalsky Lasowski. As an exceptional three-sport athlete at Mohawk High School and then a two-sport athlete at Elmira College, Missy was a dedicated player who always gave one hundred percent. She was a teacher at Herkimer Elementary School and she coached varsity softball and junior varsity basketball for Herkimer High School. Missy impacted the lives of students and athletes of all ages. She was someone that did not accept "I can't" as an answer and had an amazing understanding of life.
On September 15, 2010, she lost her courageous battle with Breast Cancer at the very young age of 30. Miles for Missy was created and will be held annually to help Missy's legacy live on. I wanted a way for her memory to live on and also wanted people that were never fortunate enough to meet her to be able to know her. I asked around and got several great individuals to help me take on this task and Miles for Missy was created!
The money raised from the event will go to the Missy Lasoswki Memorial Scholarship at Herkimer Elementary School, the Mohawk High School Scholarship in her name and The Mohawk Valley Chapter of the American Cancer Society. So far we have raised more than $32,000 and walked and run over 4, 530 miles.
