The 7th annual Race for the Ribbon is right around the corner. Because of the generosity of our friends, family, community members, and businesses, our event has raised over $60,000 for the American Cancer Society since our start in 2008. This race began as a tribute to Stephanie Shuttleworth’s mom, Nancy L. Hendershot, who endured a long, hard battle with breast cancer. Now, our family is motivated to help another as they go through their own difficult time. In addition to making a sizable donation to ACS, it is our hope that each year this event raises both awareness and funds that will ease the burden for a local families in need.
