Welcome to My Personal Page
Join Marc, Lars, and me on May 5, 2019 in DC for the Race for Hope--either through joining Team Lucea or supporting with a donation.
This will be our 7th year doing this. The first three years we ran in honor of Rafel and struggled to keep up with him. Now we are running the fourth year in his memory, and I imagine he'll be keeping all of us company at whatever pace we adopt.
As you may know, Rafel fought hard in the battle against Glioblastoma Multiforme. Part of that fight was staying as fit as he could, including regular runs (and even a marathon). He also participated in research trials, not only in an attempt to extend his own life but also to contribute to the science so one day there could be a cure.
On July 25, 2015, he handed the baton over to us. And now we do what we can to contribute to the fight. The Race for Hope raises money for brain cancer research, and it's our way of coming together in solidarity and in memory of Rafel and his contribution to our lives: as a friend, colleague, husband, father, athlete.
There are 700,000 people in the US living with a brain tumor. This year 210,000 more will be diagnosed. Join Team Lucea and let’s have some fun while we support this great cause!
