Rough Riders Pub Crawl 3

Members of YMKN joined the Rough Riders’ St. Patrick’s World Record Attempt Pub Crawl on March 11, 2017 as the Rough Riders made an official attempt to break the world record (with Guinness Book) for “most people on a bar crawl.”  We don’t know yet if the Rough Riders were able to break the record, but we do know proceeds from the event went to some very good causes, including the James A. Haley Veterans’ Hospital – the Veterans’ Recreational Therapy Program.  Thanks to those of you who participated.

At this time, only 4 cents of every cancer research dollar goes to pediatric cancer research.  Dr. Cameron Tebbi, who was the guest speaker at this signature event, oversees the Children’s Cancer Research Group at USF here in Tampa.  Dr. Tebbi and his team are not working on a “cure” for cancer; their goal is prevention!
