Fiber Optic Center announces FOC 10-4 campaign to support #5MillionSteps

July 3, 2018 – Fiber Optic Center, Inc., (FOC), an international distributor specializing in helping their customers make cable assemblies, announces sponsorship of FOC 10-4 campaign to support #5MillionSteps for kids fighting cancer.

Over the next few months, FOC will cover steps, mountains and four New England states.  The journey began with a young boy named Cole Stoddard, continued with the dedication of his father, Tony, and now is being carried on this summer by a group of people supporting Tony during a time that he cannot make the physical steps.  One person in that group is FOC Director of Strategic Marketing’s son, Kelly Skelton.  Kelly has also been a marketing contractor for special projects at FOC over the years and is considered a part of the FOC family.  The full blog article on Cole and Tony Stoddard can be found here: https://focenter.com/focs-step-by-step-making-a-difference-many-places/

With a goal of 5 million steps between the Appalachian Trail and New England Mountain Hikes, a mission called #5MillionSteps for kids fighting cancer plans to raise one dollar for each step and a total of $5 million dollars to help fund promising childhood cancer research initiatives.

In addition to being a sponsor, Kelly Skelton is kicking off the FOC Steps 10-4 campaign: Ten Mountains * Four States * One Goal on the July 4, 2018, with the first hike in Massachusetts, Mount Greylock.  Mount Greylock is the highest natural point in Massachusetts at 3,489 feet (1,063 m). Its peak is located in the northwest corner of the state in the western part of the town of Adams in Berkshire County.  The mountain is known for its expansive views encompassing five states.

Future hikes will include Mount Mansfield in Vermont, Mount Marcy in New York, Mount Osceola in New Hampshire, and the Presidential Traverse New Hampshire.   Presidential Traverse is over the Presidential Range of New Hampshire's White Mountains in a string of summits in excess of 4,000 feet (1,200 m). The 23 miles (37 km), 9,000 feet (2,700 m) of elevation gain includes Mount Madison, Mount Adams, Mount Jefferson, Mount Washington and Mount Eisenhower.
