Meningitis kills or disables around 1.2 million people per year but every case could be prevented with simple vaccinations. Very few people are aware of this. Help your Teamster brothers and sisters and SRAM raise awareness and save lives by joining Sierra’s Race Against Meningitis on June 18, 2016. Register to win prizes, get a free t-shirt, and a free meningitis vaccination.
Register Now under "Team Bill" to join the cause!
Many of you already know the story - but Local 267 lost one of our own, Bill Jubert (Maint) to meningitis during the outbreak in 2010 that ultimately took the lives of more than 5 people in and around town. Since then, we have supported SRAM in their 5K fundraiser by registering for the annual walk-run event and then supplemented our support with an annual ice hockey tournament we call Face Off Against Meningitis (FOAM). To date FOAM has raised more than $100K through the tournament in support of SRAM. The link for last year's FOAM is http://www.fcaha.org/foam/
Although it's not confirmed yet, we believe the 7th annual FOAM is a "Go" for the first weekend of August. I'll send notice out when we have that inked in.
For now, please visit the link for SRAM 5K on June 18, and register under the team name "Team Bill" to help us continue this support. The Teamsters Horsemen Motorcycle Association will escort the Teamsters Joint Council #3 parade truck, to act as the starting line speaker platform. Get signed up and join us.
I hope to see you on the 18th. Howie
