On Saturday, June 25th members of the 501st New England Garrison and Rebel Legion’s Alderaan Base attended the American Cancer Society ‘Relay for Life’ event in Salem, NH. Troopers walked around the track during the “Halloween Lap” with other attendees wearing costumes. We also posed for pictures with the teams that were there to participate in the walk event.
The NEG was also there to represent our own “Team Panda Bear”, which was created in honor of Jennifer Weiland-Sedor (ID/TI-9394) who lost her battle with breast cancer in April 2011. As a result of fundraising at a series of recent events, online donations and money collected at the walk we were able to donate $2131.31 to the American Cancer Society!
