Paragon Properties Gets Behind a Local Man in Relay For Life

Sometimes, charity events get so big that we forget what they’re really all about.

That’s why Paragon Properties is getting behind the Hope Walking team at the Relay For Life in Livonia May 19 and 20.

Kirk Wasmund is a family friend of Westwood Village Apartments leasing agent Tracey Urcheck. Kirk has suffered a relapse of his melanoma, and it’s being treated as aggressively as possible.

“As a family friend, that’s how we got involved,” Tracey says. “I’ve seen what his wife and children are going through, and his sister-in-law (Kelly Wasmund, team member) is so positive and supportive. They’re such great people and family. We’re so close that I just want to give back.”

So far, Team Hope Walking is the second-leading team in the Livonia Relay For Life having collected almost $9,400 for American Cancer Society support services for cancer patients and their families through private donations, business team sponsorships and other fundraisers — and they haven’t stopped yet.

“We want to win the spirit award and get extra money, so we’re going all out for it by dressing up in wigs and princess costumes,” Tracey says.

You can donate to Team Hope Walking on their Relay For Life webpage or join them at the Livonia Relay For Life at Bentley Field, 15100 Hubbard Street in Livonia, between 10 a.m. Friday and 10 a.m. Saturday.
