The Rochester Family and Friends of Mike Savoca will be gathering together in Webster on Saturday, Sept. 11. Our run/walk will coincide with a charity race being held in Chicago where Mike's wife, children and friends will participate.

In March 2009, Michael P. Savoca was diagnosed with Pulmonary Fibrosis. Annually, 50,000 people, like Mike, are diagnosed with this disease.   Research has proven that such a diagnosis is grim and hopeless for many. Little did we know that six months later, Mike would succumb to this horrific illness. Unfortunately, he is just one of the 40,000 people that die annually from Pulmonary Fibrosis

The Michael P. Savoca Memorial Foundation is a not-for-profit charitable entity that has been created to increase public awareness and raise funds to help support organizations that are dedicated to finding a cure and raising awareness of Pulmonary Fibrosis.

The Michael P. Savoca Foundation was established by his children to honor the memory their father and his generous spirit.   Their organization intends to accomplish these goals through fund raising events that will educate, inform and entertain its event participants.

As a big part of Mike's family resides in Rochester, we are reaching out to our family and friends to join us in raising funds to support the mission of the foundation.
