On December 31, 2010, the yachting industry lost our dear friend, Bill Langan to Leukemia. Bill was renowned as a Naval Architect, but did his best work as a great father, husband, son, and friend…
To honor Bill’s memory, Kevin Merrigan, President of Northrop & Johnson, is training to run Disney’s Marathon and a Half, otherwise known as the "Goofy Race". He will be doing this to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society with Team In Training.
This race through the Disney Parks is set as a half marathon (13.1 miles) on Saturday, January 7th, followed by a full marathon (you guessed correctly, 26.2 miles) on Sunday, January 8th. The challenge of this event pales in comparison to the fight Leukemia patients endure.
As Kevin puts it: "I know this is a busy time of year for you, but if you could take just a moment and click on the link below. Any donation is a sign of support and greatly appreciated. Bill was a wonderful person, never complaining and enduring two years of treatments. Please join me in honoring Bill Langan and working to find a cure."
