Hawthorne joins the Relay For Life

This weekend we formed team HCU4U and walked in the Relay For Life for the 4th consecutive year. We raised money a variety of ways (the total is not in yet!) like Jeans Days where we all paid $5 for the opportunity to wear jeans to work. The management team spread the mulch we needed for the landscaping around our buildings to save money and we donated a portion of the savings to the American Cancer Society. The event took place at Naper Settlement - a nice environment for an event like this. I'm even thinking about staying all night next year! It was amazing to see the survivors and all the people who have been affected by cancer.
Here's a photo of the early Relay group - our second shift came out a little later.
