About This Activity

The Erica Pombrio Foundation was established in 2010 in memory of Erica Pombrio.   Erica was just 23 when Lipo Sarcoma cancer sadly took her life on September 19, 2009.   Erica's Run was created by her mother, Lisa Spinney, to help their family cope with the loss of Erica and to honor her memory. The Erica Pombrio Foundation has raised almost $150,000 and helped more than 35 families in the local Southern NH area.

While Erica was fighting the cancer, her wish was to help those also fighting this disease. The 9th Annual Erica's Run to Strikeback Against Cancer on Saturday 9/15/2018 will be a day of fun, laughter and remembrance of our Angel, Erica, and all of the our angels that have battled cancer.
