Our Purpose

To INSPIRE, EDUCATE, and AID the Fight Against Germ Cell Cancer

On May 16, 2015, over 300 runners were registered to participate in the inaugural Race for Linmarie's 5k & 1 mile fun run at Lake Ridge Middle School in Woodbridge, VA.  We want to thank all the participants and sponsors who made this event so successful and helped us establish The Linmarie Concepcion Memorial Endowed Scholarship at George Mason University for a female rower! On May 21, 2016, a dedicated group of runners registered to participate in the 2nd Annual Race for Linmarie. Despite the rain and wind, we raised over $15,000.00 to aid the fight against cancer for the LinmarieSTRONG Germ Cell Cancer Research Fund after partnering with University of Pennsylvania Abramson Cancer Center’s Hematology/Oncology Division in Philadelphia, PA.  With this fund, the Division of Hematology/Oncology will be able to study chemotherapy resistant refractory germ cell tumors in order to develop cutting edge treatments that will bring the power of immunotherapy from the laboratory to the patient, giving families hope for survivorship.  Please refer to our "CANCER Research" tab above for more information.

You are making a difference in the fight against cancer!  The Linmarie Concepcion Memorial Charity thank you for your support!! #LinmarieSTRONG
