2016 Family Fun Run Co-Honoree Marie Cole Speaks at Miles of Hope Event

2016 Family Fun Run Co-Honoree Marie Cole from Wappingers Falls, with her husband, Dave, IBM colleagues (where she has worked for 32 years), teammates from her women’s ice hockey team (Westchester Wildcats), teammates from her Poughkeepsie FISH master’s swim team, and her friends from music and other activities. 

Marie spoke at the Miles of Hope Event on Saturday: “It lifted my spirits and made such a difference during treatment to be surrounded by these wonderful friends from all facets of my life and have their support throughout.  Going through cancer treatment helps you realize that it’s the people in your life who truly matter and we strive to share the good times and support each other through the bad times in life’s journey. Thank you Miles of Hope for honoring me and for helping all those affected by breast cancer in our beautiful Hudson Valley.”
