Power of the people goes forward with all-American spirit


With more than 110 teammates, Team Nancy received acclaim as the largest team in the 2022 Naperville Walk for Pancreatic Research on July 17.

Team Nancy was a tribute to Nancy Krejci of Naperville who lost a hard-fought battle with pancreatic cancer at age 60 on May 2, 2021.

Beginning and ending at the Riverwalk Grand Pavilion, the tally from all teams and individuals for the Naperville walk climbed to $126K, with much gratitude to all from event organizers Ann Zediker and Jennifer Tedrow.

Local TV cameras were there to record the presentation, .A clip of Glasgow’s speech is featured at safesuburbsusa.com.

Happy Birthday, America! Of course, this 4-year-old is showing her independence.
