As many of you already know, October was Breast Cancer Awareness month and our amazing team was able to come together and support this special cause throughout the entire month. We are big supporters of our community and we believe in helping those who need it most and offering support when and where we can. Breast cancer claims the lives of millions every year, of both men and women, and we are proud to have been a part of raising awareness and encouraging others to join the fight.
One of our wonderful agents, Jason Gelfuso, stepped up through the Real Men Wear Pink campaign and fundraised for breast cancer by wearing the color pink every single day throughout the month. Jason was able to surpass his goal of $10,000 to help donate towards cancer research with the help from so many incredible people. Jason finished up the month of wearing pink every day by riding a bike from our Warwick/East Greenwich office to our Cranston office in a fabulous, pink tutu!
We also are proud to have been a part of the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk in Providence by sponsoring the finish line for our 11th year. Our team gathered together and handed out pink beads to everyone crossing the finish line. It was a wonderful day dressing up in pink and remembering those who have lost their lives from breast cancer, stand behind those who are still fighting the fight and support those who have survived.
Finally, our team turned their love for card games into a way to raise money towards breast cancer. We held a poker tournament right here at our main office in Cranston and invited close family and friends to join. It was a very successful night!
We are so lucky to have such an incredible group of individuals who care so much about their community. We are delighted to have raised thousands of dollars that will go directly towards funding breast cancer research. Although Breast Cancer Awareness month has come to an end, we continue to raise money throughout the entire year. Coming up in March 2020, we will be having our 12th “Bowling for a Cure” bowl-a-thon at the Cranston Bowling Alley. The attendees dress in costumes with team names like “spare the pair”, “natures best dairy”, and “breast friends” and spend the night raising money for a great cause. We hope you can join us! Thank you for your continued and future support.
