E-Newsletter August 2010
The month of August has been an incredible journey. First, we traveled to Tanzania with a phenomenal group of young people: the 2010 Next Generation Leaders. Just days after returning home, Alan rode in his ninth Pan-Massachusetts challenge. We had the support of nearly the entire company—including eight other riders—in this important event, in which the Foundation raised more than $36,000 for cancer research.
Through these events and so many others, you're helping us build a better tomorrow. Read on to find out how.
