My name is Lynn Giacomi from Old Forge, PA. and I am very excited to be part of this year’s RR10 campaign! I am employed as the RN, Health Services Manager of the Developmental Services Division at Allied Services Integrated Health System.
I became a member of the Scranton area running group “Can’t Is Not An Option” in 2016, following the passing of my husband. I was a member of the RR8 team and completed the 2017 TCS NYC Marathon in his honor. I was fortunate to have the crew at TLC Fitness in Scranton train and prepare me for the race. It was a very proud and personal achievement for me. It was humbling to be part of such a life-changing experience! The support that I received to raise funds for a campaign that touches so many individuals and families in our area was a truly wonderful experience.
Last year I was able to be part of the RR9 family, not as a runner, but as a volunteer. I was excited with fundraising and supporting members of the team, but knew that I really wanted to be running NYC Marathon again.
I have been employed at Allied Services for going on 29 years and have seen first-hand, both personally and professionally, the impact that Allied Services has in our area. Our residents in the Developmental Services Division rely heavily on Allied’s Outpatient Rehab Facility. This campaign will enable Allied Services to purchase the most state of the art equipment to best enhance our residents’ lives.
I am honored to once again be a part of the WNEP Ryan’s Run campaign as a member of the RR10 team.
I hope you will support me with my continued efforts to raise money for the mission of helping individuals overcome obstacles they may face daily.
