Rexanna Hawkins, a former Lake Travis Middle School Athletic Director, 49, passed away in 2006 from lung cancer, having never been a smoker – just two months after her diagnosis. Rexanna’s competitive spirit, hope and warm heart impacted everyone she met.
Rexanna’s Foundation has raised more than $500,000 for lung cancer research since its inception in 2006, a groundbreaking amount for a cancer that has been largely overlooked and under researched. Run for a Purpose proceeds stay in Texas, funding research at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.
Run for a Purpose, developed by Rexanna’s Foundation for Fighting Lung Cancer, has partnered up with Lakeway’s own Be Healthy Lake Travis non-profit organization. The two partners are working together and aim to make this 5K and KidsK event the biggest and best yet.
