Michael volunteered to help at the Rays of Hope walk again this year. He was pleased to be able to do his part to help find the cure of breast cancer. He helped park cars at Longmeadow High School so that the walkers and runners could ride the shuttle to the start at Temple Beth El on Dickinson Street in Springfield. A shuttle system is required because at least 15,000 people participate every year in this amazing fundraiser. Rays of Hope has raised over $9.25 million dollars since it started in 1994 and all of the money raised by this event is kept in the local community.
