NEWS CENTER's Jackie Ward is running the Boston Marathon. Fueling her every step will be the memory of her high school best friend, Stirling Winder.
Stirling was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in her freshman year of college. Efforts to fight the disease initially worked but ultimately she died on July 28, 2012 at the age of 26.
Jackie is raising money for the Claudia Adams Barr Program at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.
Help Jackie Raise Money: Her fundraising page
Jackie has a fundraiser at Bayside Bowl on April 7th from 6-9PM. There will be cool prizes and drink specials and Bayside Bowl will donate 5% of all food and beverage sales. On April 17th, if you walk into the Portland Gelato Fiasco location and say you're there to support Jackie, 100% of the purchase goes to Dana-Farber.
