Lancaster County runners to raise funds for cancer in trek through Westmoreland
Three Lancaster County men will pass through Westmoreland County on Sept. 9 as they run across the state to raise awareness for the fight to conquer cancer.
Dave Garpstas, Rob Garpstas and Todd Henning will begin their “Endure For The Cure” run on Sunday at Pennsylvania's western border.
The trio will run along Route 30 through Irwin, Greensburg and Latrobe, ending their day of running in Ligonier.
The group invites runners to join them for a few miles and for non-runners to support them by wearing purple or Relay For Life shirts and cheering them on along their route.
To follow the runners more closely and know where they will be at specific times, follow them on Facebook at: www.facebook.com/groups/captainmorganscancercrusaders.
Donations can be made in the form of checks marked “Endure For The Cure” payable to the American Cancer Society and mailed to Captain Morgan's Cancer Crusaders c/o Kathy Morgan, 1578 Emerson Drive, Mount Joy, PA 17552, or to the American Cancer Society at 510 Pellis Road, Suite 203, Greensburg PA 15601.
For more information, call Maria Peluso at 724-309-1538.
At the conclusion of their run, there will be a “Meet and Greet” for Relay For Life members from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Ramada Ligonier. Kathy Morgan will be the featured guest speaker.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
