Courtney Fate Memorial Marathon

Courtney Fate

Courtney's Story

In the fall of 2008 Courtney Fate was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of colon cancer in the 4th stage. Through the next 18 months she went through multiple surgeries, chemotherapy, radiology, etc. and still managed to graduate with her Industrial Engineering degree and acquire a job working for Honeywell Aerospace. In late January, 2010 (only 15 days after her 24th birthday) she lost her courageous battle with cancer and passed away peacefully at the Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix, AZ surrounded by her family and friends. Courtney will always be loved, will always be missed and her memory will never be forgotten.

The Marathon

Several of Courtney’s friends have decided to run a full marathon (that’s 26.2 miles!) in order to raise money for the Colon Cancer Alliance in Courtney’s name. The marathon will be the Chicago Marathon on October 10th, 2010 (go to http://www.chicagomarathon.com for a marathon countdown). We have a matter of months to raise money so please spread the word!
