Despite our announcing that the Retiree Network would not field a team for this year’s Zero Cancer Run/Walk, a number of network members both volunteered and participated in the 2nd annual Zero Cancer Run/Walk charity on June 11th.
Five of them (Lynn Brokaw, Jerry Ekstrom, John Pergeil, Greg Wilson and Gary Lesniak) volunteered as course monitors and then made up a team to do the mile walk. The charity run collects funds, over $60,000 this year, to support research, education and patient services for prostate cancer. That disease is the second most common cancer in men and typically appears around retirement age. Thanks guys!
