For the sixth consecutive year, Farm Bureau Insurance’s Home Office Relay For Life team raised more money for the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life event than any other Pocatello-area team. Farm Bureau Insurance’s first-place team raised $8,852 this year for the fight against cancer.
Team captain Marci Hamann credits Farm Bureau Insurance and its employees for the team’s successful fundraising campaign. “To have the opportunity to work for an employer that supports and cares about this cause so much is very rewarding in itself.”
Hamann believes that one day there will be a cure for cancer. And when there is, she says, “everyone who has ever supported the American Cancer Society will have had a hand in it.”
The 2011 Farm Bureau Insurance Relay for Life team included: Rebecca Clemens, Michelle Coffin, Sheri Hokanson, Shalae Kane, Lindsay Kopp, Leigh Ann Languein, Wendy Linscheid, Jennifer Lowrey, Ashley Miller, Brandon Peterson, Linda Peterson, Lisa Shappart, and Marci Hamann, team captain.
The Relay for Life, known for its purple theme, celebrates cancer survivorship and raises money for American Cancer Society research and programs.
