Walking for a Cure

On Friday, May 30th, I had the honor to join the crowd of walkers, supporters, and volunteers at this year’s annual North Reading Relay for Life walk, which was held at the North Reading High School. Friday’s fundraiser raised a total of $20,000, bringing the year’s total to over $100,000, where proceeds will go towards efforts in finding a cure for cancer and assisting patients and their families afflicted with the disease.  This event brings out the true spirit of community and camaraderie, and I am very thankful to have been able to participate in this wonderful event.

On Friday, June 13th, I will also be joining the Cape Ann Relay for Life walk beginning at 6:00pm at the O’Maley Middle School in Gloucester.  The Cape Ann event, which will be commemorating its 14th annual walk, brings hundreds of people from all over the region.  The dedication and enthusiasm of the supporters of these events is nothing short of amazing.
