Remembering the Troops

The second annual Finishing The Fight 5K Run/Walk is currently seeking corporate and individual sponsors for its 2013 event, at Blakely Borough Recreational Complex in Peckville, on Sunday, June 2.

Finishing The Fight was formed in 2011 by the parents of Lance Cpl. John Lubeck of the United States Marine Corps. When Lubeck’s unit was deployed to Afghanistan, his mother, Angel, and family and friends rallied together to send care packages to his unit during his tour. The Lubeck family sent more than 300 care packages to the troops.

Lubeck is shown with her husband John.
