Cindy DiPinto always liked celebrations. So she would have been quite proud of the nearly 300 Delawareans who turned out Wednesday to celebrate her life at the Cindy Foundation 5K at Wilmington’s Riverfront. Cindy died of ovarian cancer in 2009, and just two months later, her friends organized a 5K and “after party” as a memorial to her to raise money for the disease. Now in it’s fifth year, the Cindy Foundation has raised nearly $100,000 for ovarian cancer research. Money from this year’s race will go to the Helen F. Graham Cancer Center (at Christiana Care Hospital) Special Needs Fund and the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Research Fund. DiPinto was particularly active in politics, and she touched many lives throughout her life. “We always have a good time in her name,” said City of Wilmington Council Member Bud Freel, who helped plan the race.
