I am so very fortunate to have a core of people in ‘Team Haralee’ who make the event a high priority in their busy lives. They support with their friendship, their love and their wallet. Those who race for the cure and those who donate for the cure on my behalf, I am lucky to have them as part of my team and a part of my life. Thank-you!
