Events / Foundation News - The formation of teams is new to the Prevent Cancer Foundation 5K and one of the teams formed this year is “Team Alan” in memory of Alan Matz, a retired senior chief in the Navy and former NASA engineer. Kelli Mitchell, girlfriend of Anthony Matz, Alan’s son, formed Team Alan in memory of this remarkable man, who lost his battle to liver cancer in August of this year. “We wanted to start walking and incorporating exercise into our lifestyle. That’s what motivated us to get involved and form a team for the Prevent Cancer Foundation 5K,” explains Kelli Mitchell of Falls Church, Virginia. “Participating in the 5K is a good way to stay active and complete the race for someone we love.” Alan’s whole family is participating. He will be buried at Arlington National Cemetery this Tuesday, only a few days before the 5K, which Kelli describes as “a wonderful way to celebrate his life after such a difficult few months.” “When I first met Alan, we hit it off right away. He had such a dry sense of humor that always made me laugh,” Kelli says. “Alan had so many life experiences that made him a truly amazing person.” [caption id="attachment_1484" align="alignleft" width="358" ...
