Team Name: The B Team
Team Leader: Rebecca Edelson
2019 Candy Cane City 5k
Starts: Nov 09, 2019
Our message:

The B Team (formerly Beth El Team Zhava) is participating for the 6th time in Hope Connections for Cancer Support's annual Candy Cane City 5K on Sunday, November 10th at 8 am. We would like you to join us.

Hope Connections is the only organization in Suburban Maryland and DC dedicated to providing free programs of support to patients and their families, regardless of their cancer diagnosis, stage of disease, age, economic status, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or where they receive their medical care. Hope Connections' programs are there for the part of a cancer journey that medicine does not treat; helping people who are affected by cancer regain control, reduce stress, and improve their quality of life. 

The name "The B Team" represents many things that are important to our family and community.  B stands for Bubbie/Beth El/ Bethesda/ Bethesda Chevy Chase High School!

Bubbie (as she liked to be called by her grandchildren) - Rebecca's mom - died 6 years ago after struggling with ovarian cancer for 2 years. Soon after becoming ill, she was told about Hope Connections and immediately she loved this organization. She attended regular yoga and pilates classes and also attended a support group for women with ovarian cancer. She also developed a community of friends who were extremely important to her.

Funds raised at Candy Cane City and other Hope Connections events are used to support friends, families, and neighbors in our community. Your help will make a difference! Please consider joining our team. We have been able to offer SSL hours for MCPS students in the past and hope to be able to offer again this year.  To join us at the Candy Cane City 5K, visit . If you are unable to attend Candy Cane City, please consider making a donation on behalf of our team.

Thank you for your support,

Rebecca, Steve, Hannah, Asher and Ezra
