Kathy DiRusso LGKathy DiRusso is Team Captain of the Cup Crusaders.

Kathy has been doing Susan G. Komen® events since 2004; participating in both local affiliate events and national long distance walks. She has been successful in recruiting others to participate with her in these events and is proud to boast over 265 'Crusaders' have been by her side between 2004 to present. Initially driven to participate in memory of her Aunt Carol (Cournoyer) Lambert who lost her battle to breast cancer over 20 years ago, Kathy now walks for her cousin Tricia (Guthrie) Calato, who was lost to the disease almost 10 years ago...and TOO MANY friends since then. Determined to do whatever possible to raise both funds and awareness, Kathy dons a BRIGHT PINK hairstyle from May to December--raising a few eyebrows too!

"I support the local Komen affiliate as best I can because I know the money remains here helping those who are currently battling the disease. I firmly believe that one day we will hear the words, "they have found a cure." Until that day...I walk!"
