The team’s captain, Sydney Flem, is a high school senior who has been a relay captain throughout high school. “This relay is very important to me,” stated Sydney Flem, who organized Tamron’s 2018 corporate team and will lead the team again this year. “We raise money for much needed research and care for those directly affected by cancer and their families and friends. And as a daughter and granddaughter of women affected by breast cancer, my participation and walk are very personal.”
