“This race is in memory of Lisa Shampoe… She was an employee/friend of Carlos Lugo, a friend of IBC, who passed away battling cancer,” Magnon said. “She was 40 years old. Lugo started this event to remember Lisa and to help raise money to help others battling this terrible disease.”

The Lisa Shampoe Run has donated close to $45,000 to great organizations that fight cancer, over the past 12 years. This year, IBC Bank will help this effort by matching dollar by dollar the funds raised by the race.

“Over the last 12 years this run has donated thousands of dollars to various cancer organizations that include MD Anderson,” Magnon said. “People can go to www.lisashampoe.com to register or come by IBC Main bank and sign up for the race! They can call or email me for sponsorship opportunities.”

The race is expecting to have 200 runners/walkers, but Magnon is eager to have more people join this great effort to fight Cancer.
