The Christina Renna Foundation will be hold its seventh annual Walk-A-Thon and Blood Drive on September 22.
The event's proceeds will benefit the Children's Cancer Research Center at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory.
The walk and blood drive are part of the family’s yearly event schedule, which also includes a golf outing, fishing outing and gala.
The annual event takes place at Lindenhurst Middle School's track starting at 10 a.m. on Sunday, September 22.
The community has come together to help the family of Christina Renna raise money and awareness for organizations doing research into the lesser known forms of cancer that each year claim thousands of lives.
Christina lost her two-year battle against a rare form of cancer at the age of 16 in 2007, and since then, through the family-formed foundation named after her, the Rennas have been waging their own unique battle against the disease.
