Lymphedema Awareness Events

#MOVETHATLYMPH 2017 Summer 60 Day Challenge

Hello Summer

Today is the first official day of Summer in the USA.  Summer is the hardest time for us Lymphies, so we need to stick together.  This is also the perfect opportunity to raise Lymphedema awareness for how tough it is for us in the summer.

For our next #MOVETHATLYMPH challenge, we will do a #60DayChallenge. You MUST share your posts in The Lymphedema Running & Fitness Club (LRFC) closed FB group or on Instagram with the hashtag #movethatlymph #lymphiestrong and the day number of your workout.
