The Craig Alguire Memorial Invite
Sunday March 15th, 2020
Craig Thomas Alguire, M.D., age 42, passed away at home on October 11th, 2019 surrounded by his family following a four-year struggle with brain cancer. A beloved son, brother, husband, father and friend, Craig inspired others with the way he met the challenge of his terminal diagnosis and the same way he lived his short but rich life: with dignity, poise, and an amazing sense of humor.
As an active father of four young children, Craig could be found cheering on his kids from the pool deck as they continued his legacy in aquatics. He was an avid competitor, competing in Master’s Swimming races, runs such as the Riverbank and Reeds Lake Run, and triathlons such as the Rhoades McKee Reeds Lake Triathlon, all with impressive times, and all while dealing with glioblastoma.
He challenged others to #LIVELIKECRAIG. Living and enjoying life to the fullest.
Donations and proceeds from this meet will go to Northwestern's Brain Institute for Glioblastoma Clinical Trials
