Every Mile for My Mom

Posted on June 10, 2017

Running 13.1 miles wouldn’t qualify as fun for most people, but Jessica Tsay isn’t your usual runner. While she’s developed a love for running over time, her passion for colon cancer came only recently after her mom was diagnosed in February. We’re excited to have Jessica running with Team Colon Cancer Alliance at the Rock ‘n’ Roll in Seattle next weekend. Her goal is to not just raise money, but to motivate others to get screened and take charge of their health! Good luck, Jessica and thank you for all you’re doing to support your mom and patients across the country with every mile! Read more
