Miles for Michael 5k race

 

The Miles for Michael non-profit organization is a way for family and  friends of Michael Joyce to remember this extraordinary man in an  extraordinary way.  

Michael passed away Wednesday, June 28th, 2006 at Geisinger Wyoming  Valley Medical Center in Plains Township.  He was 43.  Michael was  president of Joyce Financial Group, and was well-known across the region  for his loving ways.  The thousand-plus friends who attended his  memorial service are a testament that his life was spent helping others  and that there was never one person who came to him for assistance that  he turned away.

It was that selflessness that led to the formation of the Miles for  Michael event held on Saturday, June 17th, 2006.  Throughout his 14  month battle with head and neck cancer, Michael never asked anything for  himself, but asked his friends to provide support to other families who  might not be as capable of handling the financial burdens of  long-distance treatments.  Although the original goal of the Miles for  Michael Event was $10,000, more than $100,000 was raised.  A large  portion was given to the American Cancer Society - Wyoming Valley Unit  for cancer research, and $50,000 went toward establishing a permanent  fund within The Luzerne Foundation.

Addressing the needs of cancer patients and their families, this Fund  will provide support for unexpected expenses such as travel, lodging,  food, and tolls that will help families to remain with loved ones  during treatment and recovery.
