Laura Hoebee: I created Fit 4 Cures to marry the passions in my life; the search for a cure, fitness and family. At the age of 13 I lost my mom to breast cancer, to say “I was forever changed” is an understatement. The number of my family, friends and loved ones, whom have been stricken with cancer is staggering. Each diagnosis has fueled my need to find a Cure and make a difference…but HOW! Fitness, is a huge part of my life. I have my degree in Exercise Science, I am a personal trainer, I’ve run a marathon, numerous ½ marathons and many other races, and I believe that a fit lifestyle is important to preventing (and fighting) disease. Family is the spark that lights this fire. I hope to teach my kids to value healthy habits and bettering the world around them. I hope to honor my family that are fighting disease, celebrating those who are surviving it and remembering those who have lost their battle.
