Team: Love for Leanne
Team Captain: Kathryn Kozak
Leanne was born and raised in Carle Place and grew up as a top scholar-athlete. She went on to receive her Bachelor’s Degree in Education from Penn State University as well as her Master’s from Hunter College in Literacy. Leanne devoted herself to the children that she taught in New York City and Hoboken, NJ, and was loved by them, their parents, and her colleagues. In August of 2015, Leanne started suffering from terrible headaches and was misdiagnosed with migraines, until she was correctly diagnosed in October with Stage IV Metastatic Melanoma. She fought a tremendous battle and proved to us all what it means to be strong, steadfast, and courageous. On December 23rd, 2015, Leanne lost her battle to Melanoma, just 5 days after her 28th birthday. Her passion for life, family, and friendship is what she will be most remembered for. She is missed and remembered, and forever loved, by every single life that she touched during her short time here on earth. We walk in her honor and to remind everyone how truly fragile life can be.
