On August 5th & 6th, the Peerless Group was represented by a team of 50 employees, spouses, children and friends at the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.   These generous individuals donated their time/effort before the event to raise awareness and collect support donations from other Peerless employees.  Then, they also donated their time at the 18-hour event – to walk/run to raise additional support for cancer research.
This was the teams first year – but it certainly won’t be their last…  Great job Team Peerless!
