FLOC News ~ May 7th
A Weekend Of Races
FLOC members were out in force this past weekend at several races benefiting local charities, including the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Great Strides Walk in Huntington Beach, the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation’s Reaching For The Cure run/bike in Irvine and the OC Marathon in Newport Beach which benefited Talan’s Top Dog and WeRock. Again, thank you to all FLOCers for your time, assistance and donations this weekend!
April’s awareness event featured the local nonprofit Be A Hero, Become A Donor at The Surfin’ Cowboy in Capo Beach. FLOCers dressed in “country attire” and listened to Gina Cousineau, the organization’s Founder and Director, deliver an inspiring talk about the ignorance of the public regarding bone marrow and other organ donation. Responding to the call, 17 FLOCers registered as new organ donors! If you missed the event and would like to become a donor, please click here for more information!
