I Do It 4 Juan
Imagine if you can:
You have a handsome, funny, smart child who is a senior in high school, an athlete, well liked and he turns 18 on December 15, 2015. My son, Juwan Small was murdered in Stockton, California on December 14, 2015. He is a victim of senseless gun violence.
His life was taken the day before his 18th birthday for a pair of Jordan tennis shoes. In his memory our family will provide shoes to other children,
victims of a violent crime in Stockton, California. If you would like to help to reach our goal of 100 pairs of shoes, please donate a pair of new shoes for girls or boys, all sizes accepted.

Last year, our family donated over 150 pairs of shoes in memory of my handsome, smart, loving and funny son!

WHAT’S UP WITH THE UNDIES?!
We’re raising money to cure a nasty genetic disorder! Cupid’s Undie Run is a 4 hour party with a mile(ish) fun run in the middle. No, we’re not crazy, we’re just crazy serious about raising money for the Children’s Tumor Foundation.
Our team will be running in underwear/ leggings and boxers, or whatever we are comfortable in.
BIG party. “Brief” run. Raising millions!
In June The CAI Cares committee Participated in the Summer of Caring. They held a backpack and school supplies drive at each luncheon from now until August. These supplies will then be presented to local schools and organizations in need.
In April the CAI Cares Committee has decided they were rolling our sleeves up with a Blood Drive on April 15th at the Pleasanton American Red Cross Donation Center.
We work together every day to do important work. But today, we want to accomplish something even more meaningful. The Red Cross has to collect 15,000 blood donations every day to have enough blood to help patients in 2,700 hospitals and transfusion centers across the country. That’s a lot of patients in need and all of us, coming together, can help ensure patients receive life saving blood.
CAI CARES! Committee member Mandi Newton dropped off two huge carts of stuffed animals, books, blankets and lovey’s to Shelter INC. Thank you to all the guests from the November 2016 East Bay Educational luncheon that make this such a huge success!!
