Francine's Friends Participates in Kroger 2nd Annual Wellness Day in Indy

Francine's Friends recently participated in the 2nd Annual Kroger Wellness Day in Indianapolis. As one of the cancer organizations Kroger supports, we're always excited to be invited to attend this day of learning and interaction sponsored by the Kroger Cultural Council, Pharmacy and Public Affairs departments.

Retiring Kroger President Bob Moeder was on hand to recognize and thank the participating organizations for their community involvement and Kroger-sponsored events, along with Kroger staff and associates. Public Affairs Director Kevin Kotansky, who helped make possible the showing of "Life with Francine's Friends"at the first annual Wellness Day last year, emphasized "the Kroger commitment to each agency's events", including his personal thanks to all in attendance.

Kroger has been a wonderful community partner with Francine's Friends, hosting the coach at multiple sites each year, and contributing much needed donation dollars for screening mammography. We're excited about the potential for increased support and involvement in the future.
