Establishment of Liz's Legacy - Liz's Legacy
Dave Karnes made an initial gift to establish the fund, said Tom Thompson, director of development, UNMC Eppley Cancer Center.
Even though the fund is just beginning, Thompson said several businesses have already indicated they want to be a part of the fund-raising efforts on behalf of Liz's Legacy.

"Your dollars are important - private dollars play an important role in the research process," Thompson
told the road riders.
"We have some big plans and lofty goals in terms of where we want the cancer center to go in the coming years."
says the master plan is to build a cancer campus, so to speak, which would house all the cancer center facilities in one building rather than the seven currently used.
"That is a $100 million project."
"Efforts like this and people across Nebraska who come together like this, is what gives us the inspiration to do projects like this," said Thompson
