Team Cata

Team Cata is not only running to raise funds to support research for brain tumor patients and support for their families, but to remember and honor our friend and sister, Leslie Cata. Leslie was one of a kind and she fought until she left us on December 14, 2016. Leslie was a fighter and despite her tumor, "Felicia," she stayed active and engaged in life. Leslie stayed active and loved CrossFit. Leslie loved her family and adored her son, Jordan. If you were her friend, you were family. Leslie proudly served for over 22 years and retired as an Army Captain. She served as an enlisted Soldier and as a commissioned Military Intelligence Officer. 

We know Leslie will be running by our side. She was a strong supporter of brain tumor research and increasing survival rates. A diagnosis of Stage IV Glioblastoma did not drag her down, but only encouraged her to fight harder and live. We know helping others like her and their families would be what she would have wanted. 

Support Team Cata. Help us to honor this unforgettable mother, daughter, sister, friend, and Soldier. Leslie was one of a kind. Keep shining sweet girl. Let's fight like Leslie and find a cure for brain tumors. Team Cata!
