Legacies Celebrating 20 Years!

September 26, 2014

The mission of Legacies started 20 years ago with a group of 12 intrepid women who transformed the idea of Lynn Stern into the reality it is today. It’s been a fantastic journey so far and we thank everyone who has been a part of it. Here are some stats to ponder:

  • Over $2.6 million contributed to Cancer Support Community of Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky
  • From 20 volunteers in 1994 to over 100 in 2014. Our volunteers come from all over Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky
  • Recognition from Cincinnati Magazine, City Beat, WCPO, Cincinnati Association of Volunteer Administrators, Hamilton County Commissioner Chris Monzell.

Here are a few pictures from the original Legacies on Michigan Avenue off of Hyde Park square (1994), with less than 3,000 square feet, maybe three parking spaces and storage space down a steep flight of stairs. Also pictured is the Helping Hand Award we were honored to receive this year. We have come a long way and are excited about what the future holds!
