VFG 5k for Dillon & LLS!

We are so excited to announce that Vanderbilt Financial Group will be participating together as a team at the Vineyard 5k at Duckwalk Vineyard in Southold, NY on Sunday June 4th. We will be participating and fundraising through the Team in Training program for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and for our honored hero Dillon Kwarta.

Dillon is six years old and lives in Plainview, NY with his parents John and Gina and older brother Aidan. When he was just two years old he was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. It was around this time that Aidan and Dillon became friends with our Brokerage Specialist, Michelle Manfre’s children. After undergoing chemotherapy for 39 months, Dillon is now a happy and healthy Kindergartner.

We are so humbled to honor Dillon’s strength, perseverance, and victory in our Vanderbilt Team & Training for LLS! Please help us in our efforts by donating to any of our Vanderbilt Team members who are participating!
