Victoria Johnson speaking at a Relay for Life event

Victoria Johnson, last year’s 2nd runner up to California Jr. Teen Pageant, was honored to be asked to be a spokesperson and the featured speaker for the American Cancer Society’s Relay for life. She sent me a link to the video of her giving the speech and her mom gave us a little background on how this all came about.  Thanks for sharing!  

"This has been her project for 8 years now and something she has worked very hard to participate in. Over the last 8 years as a team member her and her team have raised over $8,000 yearly. She was also thrilled to win the NAM Volunteer Service Volunteer award at the pageant last year. Her father and Victoria spend many hours volunteering together for many different originations. Her father is Victoria’s and our families hero by becoming a bone morrow donor giving the gift of life to a young man with leukemia."

It's great seeing the NAM girls out making a difference like this and volunteering their time. Here's the video:
