RJF SR canceled Thank you to all who have donated to and/or participated in our annual East-To-West Scavenger Race. We have had so much fun putting the race together in past years and enjoyed collaborating with our community, local businesses and past participants. This year, we decided not to hold the event so that we could focus the manpower of our small team on some important strategic restructuring. We appreciate the enthusiastic outpour from past years participants and hope we can continue the event in future years. When we need a good laugh we still enjoy looking at the fun that was had last year!

We share our achievements with you here.
