Hi All! Thank you for visiting Elizabeth's Fundraising Page. In Liz's honor, we are hoping to raise $6,000 (after just surpassing our $2,000 goal!) for the National Brain Tumor Foundation. Although you are all more than welcome to donate here, we are also hosting a road race/walk fundraiser on August 31st (see details below).

Liz's Family has chosen NBTF for its commitment to brain tumor patients (and families), education and research. Liz courageously battled brain cancer for 16-months before she died on May 25, 2008. We hope that our fundraising efforts will help NBTF create a different fate for current brain tumor patients and their families.

For those of you who did not know Liz well, she was an avid runner. She was still running into late April of this year! Liz ran the same route about North Falmouth for over 20 years. She was often recognized in convenience stores, and even a consignment shop once, from her running route.  Liz was also a French teacher for over 30 years. She filled the classroom with fun and games while sneaking in those heavy French lessons.

Liz's first love was her family. She was a devoted wife for 31 years, a loving sister and daughter, and a stellar mom to her two girls and one dog. As one Wal-Mart consumer once noted, she was "perfect." We miss her greatly, but the good memories outshine the difficult. Thus, for mom, we would like to begin an annual race/walk to commemorate her active lifestyle. She would be pleased :)

            5-MILE FUN RUN/3.5-MILE WALK

WHAT A SUCCESS!!!                 

*TOTAL FUNDRAISING = $16,425*

Thank you to all of the runners, walkers, and volunteers for making our first annual Elizabeth Hutchinson Memorial Fun Run/Walk such a memorable event. We had 214 participants and raised over $5,000 on race day! Your generosity is astounding, and I hope you take great pride in raising such a large sum for the National Brain Tumor Foundation! I will have the offline donations by the end of the week and announce the grand total!

I apologize for the mix-up around mile 1.5 (Megansett Road). I made a differentiation in the race results- courtesy of Lucia&John Carroll! Please let me know if there are any mistakes and I will amend them. No matter the distance- you all did an amazing job. We hope you had fun running our mom's/wife's run! I'm sure she was pushing you along...
