Teal night for Life will be raising funds for Team JLO. Team JLO is a 5K race team created to race funds and spread awareness for the Sandy Rollman Ovarian Cancer Foundation 5K on April 26, 2008.The team is racing in honor of Janice Lopez, aka JLO. Janice and her family worked with me to Turn the Town Teal ( a program sponsored by the Kaleidoscope of Hope Foundation) last September.
