Our inspiration Larry running one of his marathons!


We run, walk, and celebrate in honor and memory of Larry Stachniak. More on his life and journey with lung cancer to come! Over the 13 years there has been a Lungs for Larry team (minus the ‘Rona years) and we’ve raised thousands of dollars for cancer research. Join us as we continue to raise money for research and to honor and remember Larry and all our friends and loved ones who face cancer.

Why I Run - Cheryl Stachniak  

"I have been running or walking in the annual Run4Life 5K event since 2008 when my late husband, Larry, was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. It was a shock to me and my family as he was a non smoker, a marathon runner, and only 54 years old. He was able to run in the first race, watch the team support him in the 2nd race, but passed away right before the third race in 2010. Each year my team, Lungs4larry, has participated in this wonderful local event to raise money for cancer research and support and to help others fighting for their lives, as well as honor the memory of Larry and all those who have lost their lives to cancer."
