Rhonda has raised over $18,000 during the past five years for breast cancer research through her participation in the Breast Cancer 3-Day, sponsored by Komen for the Cure. The 60-mile walk that she endures annually was inspired by a close friend who lost a family member to breast cancer. Her goal is to continue to work until her niece and great-niece, and young women of their generation, need not fear breast cancer.


Rhonda and her family enjoy snow-skiing and fly fishing.
