April 18, 2004, a group of more than 140 members and
their families turned out for the Annual “Katie’s Crew” Walk for MS.
We were asked to support this worthy cause by Brother Brian
Higginbotham, a Local 676 member employed by Louis P. Canuso whose
wife is unfortunately suffering from MS. Teamsters Local 676 donated
150 T-Shirts and our Local Union Banner to “Katie’s Crew” for this
President Well’s participated in the morning activities and the
group raised more than $6,000.00 for this worthy cause. All together
this event raised more than $90,000.00 and is very close to becoming
the #1 Walk in the nation raising over 2.2 million dollars in the
fight to find a cure for Multiple Sclerosis. This event raised the
awareness of this dreadful disease and we are very excited for next
year’s walk where we plan to double our participation and hopefully
double the funds raised.
