Comments: This was my last fundraising troop of the 2017 McLean County Relay for Life season. The books were going to close soon, and I was very close to hitting a new personal fundraising high over the 13 years I had attended the Relay in downstate Normal, IL. I decided I would have some fun, and purchased a Panda Head as the blacks and whites of a Panda color coordinate so well with the Stormtrooper armor. I was asked on several occasions, to put my Stormtrooper bucket on for a photo, and spent the last half the day in regulation uniform. I have been blessed with the opportunity to make a difference, along with my team, the "Imperial Walkers". Over the 5 fundraisers between May 21st and August 13th, I was able to raise $2,623.49 with an additional $500 provided by the Walton Foundation through 2 V.A.P. grants (Volunteerism Always Pays) for the time volunteered over the 5 fundraisers and the Relay for Life event as well.
