For Caren Gorenberg, Dec 12, 2006 started out as a normal day. She went for a routine mammogram and just happened to pick up a referral for a chest X-ray on her way out of the doctor’s office. The X-ray revealed a spot on her lung. Three years later, in Nov 2009, Gorenberg flew from her home in Gainesville, FL to San Francisco for the annual LCF gala. Her invitation labeled her a Lung Cancer survivor. It was then that Gorenberg said she realized that she needed to do something to help fight the disease. “And so, Run Amuck with the Duck was born,” she said. “A funny name for a very serious cause.” On Apr 24, 2010, Gorenberg held the first Run Amuck with the Duck 5k. On March 9, 2013, Caren and her family will champion their fourth Run Amuck for the Duck.
“It is inspiring to watch ALCF support and sponsor the best and the brightest in the field of Lung Cancer research, making a difference in the treatment and survival rate of patients with Lung Cancer NOW.” –Caren Gorenberg
