The spotlight, however, is on the 10 days leading up to Lax for Lives honoring cancer survivors. Beginning on Wednesday, May 30th, anyone will have the opportunity to honor cancer survivors across the country through their virtual SURVIVOR WALL. www.SurvivorWall.org OR http://bemoregiving.r2ismash.com. Click “How to Smash” on the right side of the page to share.
Two former Bayhawks players, Ronnie Staines and Kevin Frew, are close friends of Cleaver and members of his fundraising group: Team Living Proof. “What better way to honor one of our best friends 10-year battle with cancer than to give thousands of other survivors the opportunity to share their own unique experiences and inspire others” said Be More Giving Foundation founder, Kevin Frew.
There are three opportunities for survivors, their friends, and their loved ones to connect with one another and show their support;
- Honor A Survivor on “The Survivor Wall” at www.survivorwall.org(starts May 30th) Survivors and their loved ones are encouraged to go online, honor a survivor with their name and city, and inspire others with their story while connecting with others survivors around the globe. Suggested donation is $5.00 to continued research and awareness.
