Dear Supporters of Kick Cancer Overboard (AND past and future cruisers),
Thank you Anna Mayer for organizing it all, and Frank Preston of Advantage Career Institute for writing a very generous check right on the spot – after watching this video.
Thank you so much for helping us make a difference.
We had 67 volunteers helping us out at Runapalooza.
37 were from Allenwood Boy Scout Troop 82, raising money for one of their own who has been affected by cancer. Thank you to Melissa and Victor Coppola and all the many volunteers!
Way to go, Boy Scouts!!!
NEW JERSEY MARATHON
We had 254 volunteers helping out Kick Cancer Overboard to raise money for future cruise families
Very special THANK YOUs go to fluid station captains Michela Zacharczyk, Cheryl Peterson and Pattie Tucker (Logan Parker’s Grandma) for making it all possible.
Also a huge thank you to Long Branch Rotarian’s Luciana Silva and Jeremy Skillings who recruited well over 30 volunteers to help us out on a Sunday morning.
We are still waiting for the final check, but it should be enough to send two more families to sea for free. THANK YOU ALL!
BON VOYAGE PARTY
We enjoyed our annual Bon Voyage Party DonnaLyn Giegerich and Tom Zapcic’s beautiful home, bidding farewell to our many cruisers.
Thank you to Gary Philips and Tom Minson for the awesome entertainment.
BTW, Gary Philips played nonstop for over 4 hours at Pattie Tucker’s NJM fluid station.
Awesome music, what a talent – www.garyphilips.net

BOWL-A-THON with KELLER WILLIAMS
And thanks to long-time supporters Bill Bintliff and Ann WIllets for suggesting KCO to be one of the two recipients of the proceeds of Keller Williams’ Bowl-A-Thon. We had a blast!
