Something special for Survivors:
Coach Moore who cheerfully and generously hauls "special" guests to "special" events with Care 365 (days a year) is at it again.
You may have seen him chauffeuring LPGA member Belin Mozo and Special Olympics Athlete Alex Notte to the prom earlier this year.
He has taken many teens with physical challenges to their proms and always at no charge, through his program, Care 365.
And now he wants a Breast Cancer Survivor and guest to get the same experience. A night out to celebrate life!
Hayley Goldfeld is a breast cancer survivor and also one of the American Cancer Society's Reach to Recovery and Making Strides volunteers.
She's encouraging survivors, friends, and family to attend on Sunday to celebrate.
You can register online or on the day of the event, and there is no registration fee.
Sign up and walk on Local 8 News Anchor Amanda Hara's team!
All Breast Cancer survivors will receive a pink Making Strides hat and be entered to win the evening out for two including the limo ride provided by Coach Moore's Care 365. Grab the link to learn how his limo company, TCD Limos helps fund Care 365.
