Celebrating the 5 Year Anniversary of Team Juanita!!
December 23, 2012, our believed family member and friend, Juanita Cooper Montgomery passed away after a 2 year battle with Colon Cancer. In her memory and honor we support and participate in this race to help raise money for research and patient services and to bring awareness about this disease. Colorectal cancer is one of the top cancers in the US but it is alao one of the most preventable cancers due to Colonoscopy screenings.
Team Juanita was started in 2014 therefore this year we are celebrating the teams 5 year anniversary in 3 ways:
1) We will be having a special 5 year anniversary team shirt (more information about cost will be given once you register)
2) A goal of 50 people on our team
3) A goal of raising $5,000
For this 5th year the theme for our team will be "Hope." Juanita gave a lot of people hope through her positive spirit in the way that she handled her cancer diagnosis and lived with it for 2 years and she would truly want us to always have hope and to share hope with others. By donating to this wonderful cause and helping to raise awareness we are helping to provide hope to so many affected by this disease. All donations will support DUKE Colorectal Cancer research and community outreach.
We hope that you will join us in our efforts by either signing up to run or walk or by making a donation. Thank you in advance for your support and may God bless you!
