Jill E Harrington Hanzalik Memorial Fund 5K

by altardy on June 1, 2011

I never knew Jill, but, it was easy to see that she was loved by many, many people.  Jill passed away in her early 30’s from colon cancer.  That’s right a young woman and colon cancer, usually these two are not thought of as a possibility.  Her mom, Wendy, and brothers Kevin and Adam have created www.chaseyourdreamsnow.org  to help make people aware that this can occur. 

The 1st annual Jill E. Harrington 5k Candle Chase drew over 300 participants.  Such a large 1st annual tells me that there was a deep love for this woman.  Wendy, Kevin and Adam combined effort with The Kringle Candle Company to make sure she is never forgotten.  It was not just a day to run or walk though.  It was a day to celebrate “family”.  There were things to do all day for the whole family.  I have 5 more entries after this one to show you what a great day was put on in Jill’s honor.  I will have more information to pass on to you about Jill as I talk with Adam so keep checking in here. 

Also, look into the www.chaseyourdreamsnow.org  site and learn more.  And plan on attending this great family day next year.
