participant and mentor

The Connecting Champions Charity Run is held in memory of Victoria Ondo-Burnfin, who was a Connecting Champions intern and mentor. Victoria was a source of inspiration–teaching us to chase our dreams and not let anything, even cancer, hold us back. We’re humbled and grateful for the opportunity to honor Victoria’s memory through the smiles on our participants’ faces and the hope in their eyes. #TeamVic
