LYNN GIACOMI Old Forge, PA Team Member 2017 & 2019

I represented Allied Services in my first marathon in 2017. It was an incredible personal accomplishment and a humbling experience. I have seen how the campaign helps our residents and patients and I’m excited to be part of the campaign once again.

Every day, Lynn Giacomi, RN, helps residents at Allied Services Developmental Services Division. As Health Services Manager, she gets to know all of the residents and many become like family. When Lynn decided to run the 2019 TCS New York City Marathon, she knew she wanted to run in honor of one of these residents and friends, Jessica Yarem.

Jessica lives in an Allied Services community home. After graduating high school, she started working at Allied Services Vocational Training in Scranton. She enjoys seeing her friends, working hard and earning her own money. Jessica has also benefitted from physical therapy at Allied Services which helps her to stay mobile. When she’s not working, she loves to spend time with her mother, Kathy, and father, Steve. She also enjoys dancing, board games, swimming, and everything to do with fashion.

Lynn and Jessica have been friends for many years. Jessica uses the treadmill and bike twice a week and has set herself the goal of exercising three times a week. Lynn and Jessica inspire each other to push themselves. Lynn knows that Jessica will be cheering for her every step of the way as she trains and raises funds for patients and residents at Allied Services.
