Teamsters from across Illinois and Indiana gathered this past weekend to participate in Chicago’s Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Grant Park, marching in solidarity with Bryan D. Hancock, son of Teamsters Joint Council 25 Vice President Terrence J. Hancock, and the Shannon Rovers, Chicago’s premier Irish pipe band.
Local 710 members Cassie Fleener and Mark Mori, who work out of the UPS Rockford Airhub, volunteered to lead the Joint Council 25 group in the parade, carrying a banner supporting the Shannon Rovers and “In Search of a Cure” in Honor of Bryan D. Hancock.
Terrence J. Hancock founded “In Search of a Cure” to help raise both money and awareness for autism research in honor of his son, who lives with autism. Over the course of more than 15 years, they have raised more than $5 million.
The work that Terry and the entire Hancock family do for autism research and support programs throughout Chicago has a remarkable and overwhelming impact on so many lives. The strides made by ‘In Search of a Cure’ and Easter Seals remind us all what it means to give back and work hard on behalf of those who need our support the most. The Teamsters couldn’t be prouder to be a steadfast partner in this endeavor and to have Terry Hancock and his family play such an important part in our union family.
John T. Coli
President of Joint Council 25
