About This Activity

On May 27, 2011 Lise Marie Palmer and her unborn baby, Faith, went for a run while on a family vacation.  They were tragically hit by a car and killed instantly.  Lise lived her life for God and her family; parents, Craig & Cathy, husband Ryan and sons Ray and Mac.  Lise enjoyed running and living a healthy lifestyle. 

Why do we do this run?  We honor Lise's memory by doing this annual run; giving back to others as she always tried to do, all while being physically active outdoors with family and friends.  The Macadangdang, Palmers and the I.M.O. Foundation, thank you for your support.

"When you walk, your steps will not be hampered, when you run, you will not stumble."

We are dedicated to giving 100% of the Lise and Faith Memorial Run proceeds to our run recipients.  This year we are running for two recipients; two little girls, both battling cancer, both needing our support to lessen their families financial burden due to medical bills, household expenses and loss of income due to time needed to be with their child while going through medical treatments.  

The total includes 75% of the Lise and Faith Memorial Run proceeds going to Jason Stewart for his daughter, Lillie-Ann Stewart, our 2015 run recipient.  The remaining 25% will go to the I.M.O. Foundation's Tragedy Relief Run Recipient, Melissa Froemke, for her daughter, Ava Froemke.  We are partnered with the I.M.O. Foundation (In Memory Of), a 501c3 non-profit organization that was developed to assist men, women and children impacted by the burden of a sudden tragedy.

2015 Run Recipient:  We are pleased to announce Lillie-Ann Stewart, of Puyallup, WA., as our 2015 run recipient.  Lillie-Ann is a seven year old girl, in first grade, daughter of Jason Stewart and his fiance, Richelle.  Lillie-Ann was diagnosed on November 24, 2014 with Medulloblastoma (malignant brain tumor).  Lillie-Ann has had the tumor removed, relearned how to walk and talk, finished proton therapy and started chemotherapy.  She has 46 weeks left of chemotherapy treatments.

A little bit about Lillie-Ann:  She loves playing with her Barbies and friends.  While at Mary Bridge she enjoys playing Minecraft in the playroom with her Dad's fiancee Richelle.

2015 Run Tragedy Relief Recipient:  We are pleased to announce Ava Froemke, of Buckley, WA., as our 2015 Tragedy Relief run recipient.  Ava is a 9 year old girl, in third grade, daughter of Melissa and Justin Froemke, and the oldest sister to 6 year old twins, Ema & Malia.  Ava was recently diagnosed with a rare form of Kidney Cancer, called WILMS.  Oncologists classify it as Stage III and have her undergoing a rigorous Chemotherapy and Radiation schedule over the next 6 months.  Melissa will not be working and will be staying home with Ava during treatment for the remainder of the school year.  Ava's Aunt has opened a Facebook page and fundraiser page to go towards the many bills the Froemke's are facing. and

A little bit about Ava:   Ava attends 3rd grade at Mt. Meadow Elementary.  She loves animals, surfing Pinterest for decorating ideas, bossing her sister around, she loves anything AMERICAN Girl-especially accessories, being adventurous and exploring new sites & things, she loves building things out of wood, reading & writing, planning itineraries and researching anything we are about to do, she loves an organized space, riding her bike, baking on her own and right now loves learning about magic.
