Hope for Cancer Cure

Project Hope, the Angel Fund, held its fifth annual Strut for a Cure benefit fashion show at the Timberlane Regional High School. Students and staff involved with Project Hope decided it was time to not only help raise awareness of breast cancer, but to also reach out to families within the community whose lives had been affected by cancer. Over the years, the Angel Fund has raised over $15,000 for families within the Timberlane school district, in hopes to ease the lives of those who valiantly battle this terrible disease.
