On behalf of Ed Randall’s Fans for the Cure, thank you for your support of Ed Randall’s Fans for the Cure 8th Annual Baseball Road Trip in Columbus. Your time and generosity of spirit to help supervise our information table is appreciated beyond words.
The success of our minor league initiative to promote our twin gospels of prostate cancer awareness and the life-saving value of early detection would have been impossible without your kindness and generosity of spirit.
Think of yourself as a partner in our mission and your support as an investment in saving lives.
I hope you enjoy this holiday season and that we can count on your continued support next year.
Again, my great thanks!
