The Rockstar Race benefits the Celebrate Cherie Scholarship Fund. Cherie Yadao, a physical therapist and manager for Commonwealth Orthopedics had her life cut short on August 29, 2009 at age 35 after a valiant fight against a rare cancer called extra pulmonary small cell carcinoma.
To the end, Cherie lived her life to the fullest and touched so many lives in the process. To know Cherie is to understand her favorite saying “Party like a Rockstar.” The Rockstar Run 8k/1 mile fun run/walk celebrates the essence of Cherie-her spirit of adventure, her tenacity, and her insatiable zest for life. Proceeds from this race will go to the Celebrate Cherie Scholarship Fund to help physical therapy students pursue their dream of helping others as Cherie did.
