Dear Friends and Supporters,
As we all know, these are very difficult and challenging times for everyone, but especially for those whose immune systems are weak from cancer, cancer treatments, and other immune suppressing disorders and afflictions–our heart and concern is with you!
KORF encourages everyone to stay safe and healthy during the Covid 19 outbreak by continuing to shelter at home and to avoid contact with outsiders as much as possible and to maintain social distancing.
Team Katie’s mission remains focused: we will continue to fund cutting edge research, we will increase our efforts to find prevention, earlier diagnosis, and innovative treatments that work with a person’s own immune system.
Additionally, It is our hope and desire that we will be able to come together on June 14th, for our memorial run/walk, albeit with alterations to our usual protocol (such as: online registration only, proper social distancing, no congregating before or after the run/walk, and no tables for refreshments). But of course, we will keep you posted as to the date and you can check our website for further information.
One last bit of information: This would be our Tenth Memorial Run/Walk to mark the passing of Katie. It is with sadness, that we realize that ten years has passed, but mostly, it is with our trademark Katie hopefulness, that we believe that somehow, we will all be well enough to be together for the run/walk to remember and honor her, and the work that Team Katie has already accomplished as well as our dreams for a better, healthier future!
The Manhasset Community is strongest together as we continue our support and show concern for our neighbors and friends!
Liz and Team Katie
