Involved in RampUp Project
When Shannon Singh gets involved with a project, good things tend to happen. In 2010 she began a 5K run with all the funds raised benefitting the American Cancer Society. “I love running and I love event planning,” stated Shannon, “and that’s how it all started.” She is now on her 4th year and has helped raise thousands of dollars for not only the American Cancer Society but Mission Carthage as well. With the race participants increasing each year, Shannon knew she needed some help and set out to organize a committee. “I’ve got some dedicated, driven, hard-working people that have fallen in love with the project. When they joined, it lit a fire under me. It’s unbelievable what we accomplish when we all put our heads together.” The race has grown from approximately 100 participants in 2010 to over 260 in 2013.
