On a glorious spring evening last month, Hanscom Federal Credit Union participated in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life in Burlington, MA, raising a grand total of $12,860 through a variety of channels, the most ever raised by Hanscom FCU’s “4 A Cure” 17-member team. ("4 A Cure" was also the top fundraiser in this year's event. Go team!) Throughout the year, the team surpassed its own financial goal of raising $5,000 by hosting fundraisers and collecting pledges from friends, family, and co-workers.

This grand total included a $5,200 match through Hanscom FCU’s Charitable Foundation. Additionally, the credit union sponsored the event at the $1,000 level, which allowed for a table and tent used to sell raffle tickets for donated gift baskets during Relay.

“Relay for Life has given me a way to offer positive support to someone with cancer,” said Sandy Imbrogna, Hanscom FCU’s “4 A Cure” team captain and a training specialist at the credit union. “It’s a great thing to be involved in.”

Said Paul Marotta, Hanscom FCU's Chairman of the Board, “Relay for Life is fun, joyous 12-hour event many of our employees look forward to participating in each year, but we never forget how devastating a cancer diagnosis can be. Thanks to fundraising events like Relay and the aggressive search for cures by researchers, cancer will, someday, be a disease we’ll leave in the past.”

Although everyone's there for a serious cause, Relay is actually a lot of fun with great food, raffles, a DJ, and a lot of camaraderie. Team Hanscom will be back next year and we hope you'll join us.
