Sara VargoMeet Sara Vargo, Team LUNGevity Athlete

In May of 2016, Sara’s mom was diagnosed with stage 4 adenocarcinoma lung cancer. She was a nurse, an educator, and a non-smoker.

As an avid runner, Sara decided to use her lungs as a platform to get the word out about lung cancer. She plans to fight the stigma that it only happens to smokers – anyone with lungs can get lung cancer.

Sara has conquered several races including the Navy-Air Force Half Marathon, the Louisville Urban Bourban Half Marathon, and the Marine Corps Marathon for Team LUNGevity. She plans to continue to raise awareness and funds as she prepares to run Bank of America Chicago Marathon in the fall.
