We are proud to announce that Ides Figueiredo will be running the Chicago Marathon this fall, raising funds and awareness for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Ides is no stranger to long-distance running, having tackled the Boston marathon twice already, plus the New York, San Diego and Marine Corps marathons. She enjoys running with friends and her dog around her hometown of Medford and the surrounding area. "Running helps me clear my mind and gives me time to think", says Ides. "I am lucky to live in an area with such beautiful running routes, such as around Mystic Lakes in Medford, the Minuteman bike path through Lexington and Arlington, or along the Charles River in Cambridge."
The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society works to find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients. Donations help fund new ground-breaking treatments like immunotherapies that use a person's own immune system to kill cancer.

Good luck Ides from your Waterfield Sotheby's International Realty family!
