Fred K's Cancer June 23, 2012

The 3rd Annual Fred K's Cancer took place at Eisenhower Park, a first for us. A major difference between our registration area at Eisenhower from Cantiague is that there is no protection from the sun, therefore we brought a pop-up tent for registration, which took most of the morning to get set up.
Another huge difference is that the fitness trail at Eisenhower is 3.1 miles, nearly 2 miles longer than the trail our walkers were used to at Cantiague Park. Despite this, our walkers arrived and waited cheerfully for the event to kickoff.
That is, everyone but Baby J. : )
We headed into the day at $2,400. We had just over a month to reach our goal of $4,000.
Constantine Giannakakis, who walks in honor of his father, Angelo, who was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2004, would be leading the charge.
After a brief pep talk and thank you, the walk was underway.
Our walkers completed the trek upbeat, if a little bit overheated and tired.
As usual, Fred #2 finished things off like Rocky Balboa. He even did so while carrying Mama Leone's handbag.
After selling more raffle tickets and merchandise, it was time to tabulate our Walk Day total. $607, bring our total up to $3,000!
Before everyone dispersed for the day, we made sure to talk one final picture of all of our supporters.
Post Event Details: We accepted donations for the 2012 event through July 31st. Immediately following the walk, we continued to receive donations and held an Arbonne Spa Party that raised a total of $100.  On July 31st, we ended up with a total of $3,600 raised that was split between the Oral Cancer Foundation and the Sean Kimerling Testicular Foundation
