The Lambert Family
Chris, Justina, Nyah (Franki, and Toya)
Chris originally hails from Dover, New Jersey and Justina is from a small town in Western New York outside of Buffalo.
Chris loved cheering on the NY Giants and spending family summers on the Jersey shore while Justina cheered on the Buffalo Bills and enjoyed weekend trips to the ski slopes.
Chris and Justina met at Lehigh University where they were both captains on the track & field team and completed in the pentathlon indoor and the decathlon and heptathlon in the outdoor season.
Chris is still Patriot League Record Holder in the indoor pentathlon. Chris, who was active in ROTC and later joined the Army as an Officer, was quoted as being a “Patriot League Champion and a Champion of Patriotism.”
Fort Hood was Chris’s first duty station. After he deployed as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom, Justina was diagnosed with breast cancer for the first time. Two years later and with a clean bill of health, Justina was inducted to their collegiate athletic hall of fame.
They were married in 2012 in Cancun and welcomed Nyah to the world in July 2015.
Happy to call Pflugerville home in August of 2016, Justina was diagnosed with breast cancer for a second time.
Happy to remain active with events that support breast cancer research, you can often find Chris, Justina, and Nyah running or walking in a local fundraising event.
Chris and Justina also own and operate a small business that focuses on helping non-profit groups meet their fundraising goals. If you see a sign or an add for a Mattress Fundraiser, you’ll probably find Chris and Justina helping a local band, fine arts department, or project gradation group, to meet their fundraising goals.
