CJ Sponsors 2017On March 25, 2017, over 200 warriors hit the track as advocates for Renal Medullary Carcinoma.  Our event would not have been successful without our generous sponsors, donors, participants, vendors and volunteers. We appreciate each and everyone of you.  This was the best event thus far.  A special thank you to Angie Gooden who rocked the house with God Bless America. Thank you to our Sponsors: Curtis & Janet Threat (Gold), Rex & Rose Everett (Gold), Paul Ryan Windows (Gold), Mr. & Mrs. Allen (Silver), Dr. Brian Anderson (Silver), First Colony Health & Rehabilitation Center (Silver), Dr. John Boon (Silver), Marc & Angela Johnson  (Silver), AT&T (Silver), Bank of New York Mellon (Bronze), Nancy Wenning (Bronze), Joey & Michelle Cox Family (Silver), Rick Little (Bronze), Lucille Carter (Bronze), Mike Tate "99" Tire & Automotive and Gloria Tubbs (Individual Friend of Chris Johnson).  This year we had individuals to solicit pledges from family and friends and they all did a magnificent job.  1st place-Curtis Threat, 2nd place- Willie Cobbin, 3rd place - Adrienne Brady, 4th place - Etta Patterson, 5th place - Jone Heard, 6th place - Debra Roberts and 7th place - Nancy Smith.

CANCER will be HISTORY.  It takes a village to do all of the work and we need everyone around the world to join forces and "Make some Noise".
