Lynne Hernandez - Desmoid Tumor Research Foundation

Lynne Hernandez

Lynne’s life officially began on January 1, 2010 at 12:01am, just after she shot the starting gun for her first race. Since then, she has consulted on and/ or timed over 50 running events for local nonprofits. She has directed 3 full/ half marathons and 2018 is her 7th year directing Running for Answers 5K. She initially learned about desmoids through running buddy, Sera Snyder, who was diagnosed with the disease and founded Running for Answers 5K in 2010.

Although Lynne’s work experience spans many sectors/ industries (federal gov’t, retail, dotcom, large nonprofit, small nonprofit, small business), they pale in comparison to the depth and satisfaction she receives through her work with DTRF.

Lynne lives in Philadelphia, PA.
