October 31, 2013 Summit Participates in Marianne Volpe 5K and Pumpkin Fun Run
Summit Security Services, Inc. was a proud participant in the Marianne Volpe 5K and Pumpkin Fun Run, held October 26 at Baldwin Park in Baldwin, New York. Event donations and sponsorships support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
With the support of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, the event was organized by the family of Summit Client Service Manager and good friend James Volpe, whose wife Marianne passed away in 2011 after a two-year battle with acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL), an aggressive form of blood cancer.
Marianne is missed by the countless number of family and friends with whom she shared her life. In organizing the event, the Volpe family remembers not just Marianne but the many hundreds of thousands of people and their families who suffer today from blood cancers and who pray for a cure.
This year’s Marianne Volpe 5K and Pumpkin Fun Run raised several thousands of dollars for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
