New Bedford, MA, USA, July 2, 2018 – Fiber Optic Center, Inc., (FOC), an international leading distributor specializing in helping their customers make the best cable assemblies in the world, announces sponsorship of FOC 10-4 campaign to support #5MillionSteps for kids fighting cancer.
Over the next few months, FOC will cover steps, mountains and four New England states. The journey began with a young boy named Cole Stoddard, continued with the dedication of his father, Tony, and now is being carried on this summer by a group of people supporting Tony during a time that he cannot make the physical steps. One person in that group is FOC Director of Strategic Marketing’s son, Kelly Skelton. Kelly has also been a marketing contractor for special projects at FOC over the years and is considered a part of the FOC family. The full blog article on Cole and Tony Stoddard can be found here: https://focenter.com/focs-step-by-step-making-a-difference-many-places/
With a goal of 5 million steps between the Appalachian Trail and New England Mountain Hikes, a mission called #5MillionSteps for kids fighting cancer plans to raise one dollar for each step and a total of $5 million dollars to help fund promising childhood cancer research initiatives.
In addition to being a sponsor, Kelly Skelton is kicking off the FOC Steps 10-4 campaign: Ten Mountains * Four States * One Goal on the July 4, 2018, with the first hike in Massachusetts, Mount Greylock.
Mount Greylock is the highest natural point in Massachusetts at 3,489 feet (1,063 m). Its peak is located in the northwest corner of the state in the western part of the town of Adams in Berkshire County. The mountain is known for its expansive views encompassing five states.
