The Nov. 7, 2014 Richard’s Run for Life was a huge success. Thank you for your support.
2,000 participants took to the streets of Ybor City in this annual road race to support cancer research. Many more came to lend their support in this important cause.
One hundred percent of every dollar donated and raised will benefit the Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) Program for sarcoma research and the Advanced Prostate Cancer Collaboration (APCC) at Moffitt.
Please mark your calendars for Friday, Nov. 6, 2015.
“Richard’s Run for Life” 5K Race, which is part of the Gonzmart Family Foundation — a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization — was created by Columbia Restaurant President Richard Gonzmart as a way to combine his love for running with his long-time desire to find a cure for cancer.
Each year the Tampa Bay community gets together to run for life through the streets of Ybor City.
“It is hard to believe it's been 14 years since I created “Richard’s Run for Life” under the Gonzmart Family Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, to raise funds for research at Moffitt Cancer Center. Many of our lives have been touched by those who have had cancer and I have personally lost family members and dear friends to this horrible disease. My passion to find a cure for cancer is huge and I am motivated to help Moffitt beat this horrible disease.”

More than $50,000 was raised for cancer research at the eighth annual Andrea’s Sip for Life wine dinner. This event began in 2007 in memory of Andrea Dicks Hartley, a young mother and Moffitt patient who lost her battle to sarcoma cancer.
In the eight years of this Tampa wine fundraiser, more than $450,000 has been donated to the Moffitt Cancer Center to further cancer research on Adolescent and Young Adult sarcoma.
