Lauren’s Circle of Strength was conceived more than 10 years ago, through the bonding of a network of family, friends, and strangers, who were inspired by Lauren’s example of unrelenting spirit and courage. Each year, both groups and individuals have opened their hearts in the spirit of Lauren's First and Goal, and for that, we're forever thankful.
