Meet Skylar Marcoux

Skylar Marcoux

Skylar Marcoux is a senior at Limestone College. In the summer of 2013 she is running with a group of college-aged students on a 30 day, 4000+ mile journey from San Francisco, CA to Baltimore, MD.

What is your connection with the cancer community?:

Big Doug was an inspiration to everyone who knew him. To me, he was like my second dad. Loosing him to cancer was a big turning point in my life. It reminded me of how valuable relationships to family and friends are, and since then I have become more aware of cherishing those relationships. He was also one of the first people who helped me get involved in sports, and as I have grown that has become a huge part of my life. I wouldn’t be where I am today if he didn’t help me with those opportunities when I was younger. I know that there are many

people who have had other experiences and life changing moments involving cancer, and I want to stand by their side and help them deal with these situations, as well as learn from them.

Why are you running with the 4K for Cancer?: I feel honored to be accepted to run with the 4K for Cancer. This opportunity will give me the chance to help inspire those affected by cancer. I am so excited to learn from others on this journey, be motivated by their stories,
and hopefully be an inspiration to them as well. There are many people that have shaped my life and helped me to become the person I am today, and now it’s my turn to be that idol in someone’s life. I am in this for the adventure and to help promote the awareness of cancer. I will sacrifice this month of my life in honor of those whose lives have been taken over by cancer, and/or affected by it!
