Just received a link shared to me about an important community event. Here is an excerpt of the event and how you can sign up and get involved. The Maloney’s and Swistaks are two local families who have brought a lot of good things to our NK community. Here is a great cause to get you and your family involved in. The information below is also listed on the event’s Facebook Page – Jog For Julie & Dana Farber.
On Saturday, June 20 the 2nd Annual Jog for Julie & Dana Farber 5K family fun run/walk will be held in North Kingstown. This community event has been set up in memory of Julie Swistak Maloney, who died in March, 2014, at the young age of 43 after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Julie was a Jamestown native and long-time resident of North Kingstown. She was a loving wife, devoted mom, and good friend to many. In addition to the caring support of family and friends, Julie received care at the world renowned Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, MA. As an expression of gratitude for the wonderful care she received throughout her battle, Julie’s family will donate all net proceeds from this family fun run/walk to the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. It is the goal of Julie’s family to aid Dana Farber’s efforts to win the battle against cancer so other families do not have to endure the loss of loved ones. Julie’s family and many friends would like to thank everyone, in advance, who will come out on June 20 to honor her spirit and legacy of courage, and to help support the invaluable work of the Dana Farber Cancer Institute.
The race will be held Saturday, June 20, 2015 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM. Address is:
North Kingstown High School
150 Fairway Dr
North Kingstown, RI 02852
