Facing the Journey of a Lifetime

Linda Wortman received a shocking diagnosed in 2008, as a never-smoker, she had lung cancer. Linda and her family began an amazing journey of recovery, wellness and resiliency after this life altering news. A personal (and bodacious) goal she set while recovering from a surgery that removed the upper left lobe from her lungs, was to run a 5k in every state and a 10k in every continent. She has met that 5k goal, and is about to do something even bigger in one continent on her list.

Linda was inspired to run with the purpose of making a difference. This involved giving back to Mayo Clinic, and in 2014 she and her husband Jerry established the Wortman Lung Cancer Foundation raising much needed funds for Lung Cancer research. All proceeds of her foundation go to Mayo Clinic

Recently Linda began training at her home in Big Sky, MT. at some pretty high altitudes preparing for something BIG.
