Future Leaders first ABCares team across Mud Run finish line
ABCares raised over $4000 for Delaware Mud Run this year and the Future Leaders team was the first ABC team over the finish line.
“It was a great day!” said ABCares Chair Sallie Ann Conner, who coordinated ABC Delaware’s participation in the event. “We had 10 teams representing the various committees at ABC, a themed-tent where members and friends could cheer on our mudders and fabulous ABC members who contributed to Leukemia Research Foundation of Delaware. THANKS! to everyone who helped, from the people who set up the tent at the crack of dawn Sunday morning, to our t-shirt sponsors, to the runners and the spectators. It was a super day all around. We could not done any of this without the support of this great organization!”

ABC members got into the spring yard work mode during an ABCares project at the YWCA's Empowerment Center in Wilmington on April 21. The work included weeding, powerwashing, planting a garden and mulching.
"Thanks bunches to the ABC members who turned out to help," said ABCares Chair Sallie Ann Conner. "This is what ABCares is all about, giving of our time and talents to those in need. And we all had a good time in the sun."
The ABCares Committee is finalizing plans for other events this year. Anyone interested in participating on the committee or other service projects should contact Jean Toman at the ABC office, (302) 328-1111 or email@example.com
