The local running community lost Janet Gadient to pancreatic cancer last fall. Having just turned 60 years of age, physically fit and a vibrant soul, she came up short in her goal to live to see the century mark. Courageous and determined until the end, Janet truly ran until she couldn’t anymore. She completed her last 5K in March, 2014, finishing strong and happy and continued to run her “route” or as much as she could handle until just a few months prior to her passing away. A wonderful person who truly gave more than she received in all aspects of life, Janet’s last wish was to see to it that her friends and fellow runners would keep the dream alive and celebrate her spirit in a 5K. Janet made provisions to ensure that any expenses for this run would be covered, so that your entry fee and any additional contribution will flow completely to our beneficiary. The LiveFit program presented by the UNC Wellness Center will use these funds to provide scholarships to cancer survivors seeking to regain an active lifestyle, all in keeping with the spirit of Janet’s dream.  Whether you are a runner, walker, or a roller, we welcome you to the Live to 100 5K!
