Join us in supporting Tressler attorney Elizabeth F. Wagman as she runs the Chicago and New York City marathons on Sunday, October 9, 2022 and Sunday, November 6, 2022, respectively. This year, Liz is making her marathon experiences more meaningful by running for charity. Every step she takes will honor those running their own race against cancer. She has set up a marathon fundraising page where the proceeds she raises will benefit the American Cancer Society.
“Cancer has affected so many people I know and love that it’s inspired me to join this American Cancer Society event. Taking part in this event gives me the chance to make a difference and honor those touched by cancer by raising funds for groundbreaking research and services for people dealing with cancer,” said Elizabeth Wagman.
