This event honors Allan Makowski, an artist, poet, outdoorsman, and modern Renaissance man. He was a very active member of the community, a loving, caring family man, and a loyal friend. Allan lost his courageous battle with stage IV lung cancer in June 2009. His family and friends have a strong commitment to funding early diagnosis and treatment research, and have planned this 5K walk in the hope that it will become a growing annual event.
Northeastern Pennsylvania is an area with an above-average rate of lung cancer. So many lives are touched by this disease - those of the patient, the survivors, families, and friends. We hope to bring lung cancer awareness to the forefront in the northeastern Pennsylvania area.
