Please join Kappa Kappa Gamma and the GO2 Foundation for Lung Cancer, (formerly known as Addario Lung Cancer Foundation) on Sunday, April 28, 2019 for our Annual Jog for Jill at Cal Berkeley. Jill Costello was a former Cal Kappa and coxswain on Cal Women’s Rowing who passed away in June 2010 at the age of 22 after battling stage IV lung cancer.
In addition to raising awareness and funds for lung cancer, this year’s event will present the 2nd Annual Jill Costello Award and give back 5% of the proceeds to the Cal Greek community member who most embodies Jill’s spirit by standing up to face adversity and inspiring others in the process.*
Together, we will gather to celebrate those amongst the Cal Greek community who are not conquered by their challenges, just like Jill. If anything, it motivates them to go beyond their limitations, and in doing so, has a positive and impactful influence on their friends, their family, and those who experience similar hardships.
But more importantly, we’ll gather to show the strength of the Cal community and the ability that each and every one of YOU have to lift others up and make a difference in society. Jill’s story and the stories of the community members we will highlight with the Jill Costello Award will hopefully motivate many others to climb their own mountains of hardship and inspire their communities to meet their call and gather around these people in support.
