About This Activity

The Erica Pombrio Foundation was established in 2010 in memory of Erica Pombrio.   Erica was just 23 when Lipo Sarcoma cancer sadly it took her life on September 19, 2009.   Erica's Run was created by her mother, Lisa Spinney, to help their family cope with the loss of Erica and to honor her memory. The Erica Pombrio Foundation has raised over $40,000 and helped 13 families in the local Merrimack, NH area.
