Marianas March Against Cancer


The last Friday in April was the annual Marianas March Against Cancer at Hopwood High School's track. There were several organizations supporting the event, including Marriage Encounter and PIC. The M.E. tent's theme was "One Love" and we had couples and their children run around the track. Russ and I walked one lap for our team.
We bought some luminaries again this year to honor those who fought cancer including Russ' dad, Rich.
The PIC booth had staff and their family members selling ducks, cookies and T-shirts for the fundraising cause. In the end, PIC won the largest corporate contributor by raising $11k.
We also honored those who lost the battle against cancer. Our dear friend, Ron Romero, died over two years ago and Shelby, our former golden, died of splenic cancer back in Jan 2010.

The MMAC raised over $111k this year by companies and individuals who gave their time and energy to raise awareness for cancer.   Great job!
