Donna Lane

As many of you already know, tragedy befell the local running community yesterday.
Donna Lane, a very close friend and athlete of Shore AC runner and Stinger Coach Tom Schaefer, was killed yesterday morning a block from her home whilst riding her brand new motor cycle.

Donna was a frequent attendee at our Saturday morning workouts and recently under Tom’s guidance achieved her dream of completing a marathon in Washington DC at the Marine Corps marathon. Donna was an extremely kind person and devoted wife and mother. A highly talented massage therapist, this summer, Donna was due to take up a very prestigious position at the Olympic training center. Last year, Donna was recruited to work on the athletes of the world famous Cirque Du Soleil.
We are extremely and deeply saddened by this tragedy; Donna will be greatly missed by the running community and beyond.
Funeral arrangement details will be passed along as they become known.

Donna is survived by her husband Vinny and two daughters, both of whom are currently in College.
