Stephanie Knappe, a registered nurse from Colorado, is running the 10K as a member of Race to Cure Sarcoma Marathon Team in support of her husband Frank who has been challenged by sarcoma for nearly five years. Frank has received care at the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minn., and most recently at the University of Colorado where he has been in a Phase I immunotherapy clinical trial.
Stephanie hopes to do the marathon next year. In the past, she has run half trail marathons and other 10Ks. Says Stephanie, “We feel so fortunate, and we are committed to helping others…The science and research obviously is what can change the course of treatment for so many. That is the reason I want to participate and fundraise. I want to give back in any capacity I possibly can.”
