At Glover Field on Saturday June 4th, Sustainers and Active Members of the JLP joined over 400 walkers at Relay for Life to support the American Cancer Society.  Team members walked around the track throughout the 12 hour event, enjoyed a host of musical entertainers, listened to tearful speeches and gazed at hundreds of luminaries with the names of loved ones touched by cancer.  Some even camped overnight and continued the walk, to signify that cancer never sleeps. Our JLP & Friends team, one of the 30 at the event, reached Bronze level by raising close to $3,000!   This magical evening, was truly a community effort, making over $74,000 to raise awareness and support the fight against cancer.  Many thanks to all who donated and supported Relay.
