Honor a Penn State Grad and Race Against Leukemia

Melissa Heydenreich was a Penn State graduate, who, after being diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia, passed away on New Years Day ’97. This Sunday, November 14t Moxie-THON is hosting the 13th Annual Melissa Heydenreich 10k/5K A Race Against Leukemia.

As the Lion Ambassadors site states, “Moxie-THON, organized by Penn State’s Lion Ambassadors and sponsored by the Penn State Alumni Association, was the idea of the Heydenreich family.” All proceeds from the race will go to Leukemia—Lymphoma Society of America.

“[The race] is the most appropriate tribute to Melissa’s life because it incorporates so many of the things she loved.” Register online for $18, or the day of at 10 a.m. for $20. So come out to the IM building on Sunday and honor Melissa. The race starts at noon!
