American Cancer Society - Relay for Life

by Team Captain: Ben Swope

Team Lampire participated in the American Cancer Society - Relay for Life in Bedford, PA on Saturday, June 29, 2013. The walk will took place at Friendship Village Campground, 348 Friendship Village Road, Bedford PA, 15522. Starting at 9:00am, 12 members of Team Lampire hit the track for a fantastic effort to help raise funds to defeat cancer!

The next 24 hours saw a true team effort to ensure we succeeded. Along the way, new friendships were made with other Relay For Life teams, as we all walked the track with thoughts of family, friends, neighbors, co-workers and more who have been effected by this disease. Great conversation took place as many of our new friends inquired about Lampire and were ecstatic to hear about the products and services we offer to help the world. Lampire President Gregory F. Krug stated, "I would like to express my sincere thanks to all Relay for Life participants. I am so very proud of the commitment and support provided to this wonderful cause. It was a great team effort which translates from the track directly to our work on our farms and in our labs."

Team Lampire is registered and can be found on the ACS website at Team Lampire. Team Captain Ben Swope, has set a goal of raising $1,000 and we are almost there! We are looking to blow that number out of the water! If you would like to donate to this cause, you can still go to the Team Lampire ACS Relay for Life webpage and place your donation, or contact Ben directly.

Thank you Ben and all of Team Lampire! A huge thank you to everyone for their participation and pledges.
