Week 3 ORT 2018: Brand New Territory

We can’t believe October is almost over! During the month, we’ve been out on the road talking about our mission, mobilizing our community to take action, and expanding the reach of our Right To Know (RTK) and Resources After Diagnosis (RAD) programs.

We’ve been traveling the nation for three weeks, connecting with you and learning about why you fundraise and helping you raise even more!

In our first week, we drove from California to New  York and met hundreds of new friends and fundraisers who support our vision. In our second week, we made a U-turn and cruised through the Midwest, meeting even more new friends.

This week, the Open Road Tour drove into territory its never reached before… the Pacific Northwest!
