Jilly Bean Dream Trip Award
The Jilly Bean Dream Trip Award is in honor of Jill Gregorin Lecorchick, who passed away in August 2015, after battling Stage IV breast cancer for five years.
After Jill was diagnosed back in 2010, her sister Tricia discovered the Mama Mare Breast Cancer Foundation and got the whole family involved. The foundation supported Jill, giving her a check for $5,000 to cover medical expenses and a trip to Cancun that she used on her honeymoon.
In her honor, Jill's family, along with the help of Team Jilly Bean members, want to continue Jill's memory by allowing a breast cancer survivor to take a dream trip of their own. The recipient will be able to choose their destination and have all travel expenses and accommodations paid for, along with some spending money for food and entertainment.
This award will be granted annually at the Mama Mare De-FEET Breast Cancer 5K Run/Walk. The recipient will be chosen, with the help of the foundation, based upon their ability to exhibit the same qualities that Jill possessed: courage, a never give up attitude and the willingness to help others that are struggling with breast cancer.
