Run Cancer Out Comedy Fundraiser
We are raising funds for the Run Disney Half Marathon with Team in Training for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in honor of Anthony Cornacchia on Oct 13, 2019 with a goal of $5,000 at Giggles Comedy Club. Tickets include unlimited pizza, a 75 min comedy show, and some amazing raffles. It makes for a great night out with family and friends for a special cause.
My father, Anthony Cornacchia, was diagnosed with Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 1994 at age 57 and fought a five-year-long battle that ended in on New Year’s Day 2000; I was just 19.
It is in his honor that Matt and I are raising money for TNT, The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society for the Disney half marathon to “run cancer out”, and my dad’s strength and laughter that are our inspiration to run 13.1 miles the week before my 40th birthday in Disney, my dad’s favorite place. All proceeds go to Team in Training for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in honor of Anthony Cornacchia under team Mattali Dolcorn.
Team In Training helps The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) support cutting-edge research projects in the most promising areas of cancer research. The impact of LLS-supported research goes beyond blood cancers. Approximately 40 percent of new cancer therapies approved by the FDA since 2000 were first approved for a blood cancer – which have led to breakthrough treatments for other cancers and serious diseases.
