Employees from First National Community Bank (FNCB), the largest community bank in Northeastern Pennsylvania, recently participated in the 2013 Komen Race for the Cure in downtown Scranton, raising $2,500 in the fight against breast cancer.
A long-time supporter of the annual race, this year the Bank honored the memory of Maryann Walker, an FNCB employee who lost her battle to breast cancer. Team “Maryann’s Walkers” raised funds through sponsorships, walk participation, employee donations and a lemonade sale.
