A new directive to cure childhood cancer

President Jack Creswell has just completed his first board meeting in St. Louis and sends a message to the members of Optimist International about 100% and then some.

For Jack and his wife Sue, the slogan has a special meaning as they, along with the Board of Directors, have promised additional support to John Hopkins University to cure childhood cancer. Optimist members throughout the United States and the Caribbean helped the organization reach its first, second and third level of commitment with the university and stepping up to do just a little more is what being an Optimist is all about.

Watch for more information online and in the Optimist magazine about the $500,000 commitment to cure childhood cancer.

When making your charitable donation through the Optimist International Foundation,be sure to write "cancer research" on your check or correspondence. Thank you.
