L.U.N.A.R. Racing was founded by Shawn Mastrantonio, a fitness guru and real life warrior, lives with a cancer called Von Hippel-Lindau disease (VHL). VHL is a genetic condition which causes blood vessel tumors and cysts. These tumors can be benign or cancerous and can grow all throughout the body, including in the brain, pancreas and even on the spinal cord (vhl.org).
Despite his own health complications Shawn is determined to help others when able. so he helped found the organization L.U.N.A.R. (Lace Up Now And Run). Running is something that he loves yet is very hard so he wanted to make a difference in the lives of people who are also battling this terrible disease whether it’s another patient, a caregiver, doctor, or researcher. A portion of all sales from the L.U.N.A.R. store will go towards this organization with the goal to help others battling the same situation.
