A Washington woman raised tens of thousands of dollars for cancer research earning her a trip to Super Bowl LIV.
Angie Downs works right here in Seattle, she is a mother of two and a Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Army Reserves. She sounds like a badass. But this bad ass was also diagnosed with stage four lung cancer – even though she never smoked in her life.
Angie was on a mission to spread awareness and money to fight the disease.
There is a lung cancer survivors challenge that is put on every year by the Chris Draft family foundation and the winner gets to go to the super bowl!
Angie Downs is this years winner!
She raised nearly fifty thousand dollars with nearly all of the money going toward cancer research.
Ninety percent of the money she raised will go to Seattle Cancer Care Alliance and Fred Hutch Research Center.
The other 10 percent will go to the Draft Family Foundation.
