Karen LaFemina will be walking her 6th TBBCF Walk on October 1, 2016. She walks with her Team Leesa.
Karen and her family are huge TBBCF supporters. In addition to being a TBBCF marathoner, Karen has been instrumental in gaining support from Big Y Market to include TBBCF in their Partners of Hope initiative. Karen honors her sister, Leesa.
My sister, Leesa LaFemina passed away from breast cancer in 2011. Prior to her passing, we talked about doing this walk, and this was the one she wanted to do because 100% goes to research. She was impressed with that and wanted to do it herself. We are doing this for her and those who are suffering or have suffered with this cancer.
