program will launch again in January with new and exciting changes. You
will see a new redesigned web site and new and improved personalized web pages
for those who are raising money for charities.
The Leadership Links program is also partnering
with The Nicklaus Children’s Healthcare Foundation and CureSearch for Children’s
Cancer. Our juniors will be able to raise funds for a particular child
suffering from the effects of cancer. We are asking our members to join
forces with the AJGA to help battle this disease. More information will
be available in January on this new and exciting program.
