Expansion best describes what’s been going on at Head for the Cure this spring! We added five events this year – for a total of ten in 2013– and added a new staff member to the team! Dae Smith joined the staff full time in May as a coordinator. To date, we have held six events, including two new this year! Each event has been successful and exciting, and we can’t wait for the next four!
