In Memory of Maricela Vita


Raised: $656

Goal: $700

Welcome to our team fundraising page!

My Mami Maricela Vita passed away January 19th 2021 after her battle with Pancreatic cancer. Mami went through 15 rounds of chemotherapy. When she was finished with chemotherapy she then proceeded with surgery to remove her pancreas. Mami soon after passed away due to complications of the surgery. My mami was resilient, fearless and strong-willed. Words can’t describe how much she is missed, especially her infectious laugh and smile. I wanted to do this walk to raise money for a good cause and keep her memory alive. I appreciate everyone who is taking the time to walk and those who donated it does not go unnoticed.
