In memory of Rachel Lynn Guss, Class of 2005
Running For Rachel began in an effort to support our daughter, Rachel Lynn Guss, as she battled duodenal cancer. Since her passing in November 2011, our mission continues with raising awareness and funds for gastrointestinal cancer research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Last year’s race was a huge success! 
The remarkable funds raised are currently being used for research which aims to close the gap and find new treatments for duodenal, as well as pancreatic cancer. It is our mission to support these studies until a treatment or a cure is found.
Last year’s race was a huge success. The Running for Rachel 5K has truly become a premier fundraising event in Central PA!  In the eight years since our inception, we have raised over $410,000. Our success is directly related to the support from our sponsors!
Thank you,
Cheryl Rolston Guss '73 and Tim Guss '72
