Coldwell Banker Bain | Anacortes

Elaine Goodrich (office manager in Anacortes) participated in the Anacortes Cancer Walk on Saturday, August 19th.  It was a 10-mile walk in Anacortes and all funds stayed local and went to the Merle Cancer Care Center. The funds go into the Cancer Relief Fund which goes directly to patients and their families.  Everyone in the Anacortes office supported Elaine and as you can see below, she was the top in raising donations.

Elaine walked in memory of her late husband, Joe, who died of prostate cancer.

Last year was the first year and together they raised $10,000. This was the set amount for the goal of the drive this year.  And this year for the 2017 Anacortes Cancer Walk, we have raised $17,078!!!!

What an accomplishment this is for all of the patients at the Merle Cancer Care Center. The support, the care, the LOVE for the community is great.

There are 3 team members who raised over $1000, and for that we all thank you!
Elaine Goodrich: In Memory of Joe Goodrich raised - $1785!
Emily Wray: Team Fidget Spinners raised - $1275!
Lynette Brower: The BJB Fan Club raised - $1025!
