Fifteen Triangle professionals are in a pitched battle. It's a fight against blood cancer and a competition to see who can raise the most money for LLS in ten weeks. The male and female winners will be crowned Man and Woman of the Year next month.
We have adopted one of the big hearted combatants. Jennifer Cox, who works for Durham-based Endurance Magazine, is aiming to raise $100,000. Most non-profits request comp tickets or an autographed baseball. Jen thinks big...and outside the box!
Her Team Believe will be at Friday night's game, entertaining contributors in our suite and promoting her cause throughout the ballpark. From sumo wrestling to the postgame fireworks, it's a DBAP takeover for LLS. Jen's web page.
There's another, equally important facet to all of this. We will recognize the LLS Boy and Girl of the Year for 2015, Mason Brantley and Kaelyn Smith. Both youngsters are in remission from leukemia.
