Foster was diagnosed with rectal cancer a decade ago. His doctor, anticipating surgery, told him that dropping from 230 to 170 pounds would greatly assist his recovery. He lost the weight and, having experienced the fruits of exercise for the first time in his life, has since embarked on many long-distance fund-raising walks. In 1999, a recurrence of the cancer spread to his lungs, but he now has a clean bill of health. He organizes “Dan’s 5K Fun Run” for cancer charities from his home in Gerritsen Beach, Brooklyn
The race will start at 11 a.m. sharp at Gerritsen and Devon Avenue. The course runs to Avenue X to Burnett Street though the nature trail and back to the finishing line at the Cort Club on Gerritsen Avenue.
This year the run will be in Memory of Joan Gardner and Wynne McCann and in support of all families affected by cancer.
