Lace up those sneakers and head on down to Tampa’s Al Lopez
Park Oct. 20 to help the Suzanne Ciani Brain Cancer Foundation in its battle to
end the deadly disease.
The Journey to a Cure Run/Walk is a 5K event designed to raise money to benefit research to end this disease. The timed event kicks off at 7:30 a.m. Oct. 20 at the 4810 N. Himes Ave. park. The cost to enter is $35 until Oct. 6 and $40 through race day.
The Suzanne Ciani Brain Cancer Foundation was founded in 2012 by the family of a longtime Carrollwood area resident who was facing down Stage IV Glioblastoma. While Suzanne Ciani lost her battle with the disease earlier this year, her family, friends and supporters of the foundation continue their efforts to find a cure.
Ciani’s family is also responsible for founding the Odessa Organic Farmers’ Market. Her husband, John, is well-known throughout Tampa Bay for his efforts to support local growers, musicians and small businesses.
