This is simply a letter of thanks to the individuals in the Laurel community who are helping me grow the Mance Foundation. In particular, I am especially grateful to Chief McLaughlin and every person in the Laurel City Police Department for their valuable input and community engagement in helping the organization carry out its first Tour de Laurel bike ride and 5k walk fundraisers. I cannot say thank you enough to them for volunteering their time to help keep the participants safe during these fundraisers.

On behalf of the young men that will benefit from the scholarship dollars raised, we are humbled by their support. I am personally grateful for the blessings I have received for being part of such a caring community.

Patricia A. Daniels

Founder and president, the Ryan Odelle Mance Memorial Scholarship Foundation
