Making a Difference Together

Big: Melissa Gerlach
Little: Infinity     
Matched since: March 2011
Infinity has been matched with her Big Sister Missy for just over 6 months now, and they recently decided to give back to their community.  They helped by packing more than 16,000 bags of General Mills food products for the Especially for You Race Against Breast Cancer, which was held on Sunday, October 2.  The bags were given to registered race participants in appreciation of their efforts and support of the Especially for You Race Against Breast Cancer mission to raise funds for individuals unable to afford breast cancer screenings and other support services and to educate individuals on the importance of early detection.  It’s great to see the impact a Big and Little can have, not only in each other’s lives, but in the community as well.  Infinity’s photo was since featured in the Cedar Rapids Gazette.
