The Varner & Brandt team is proud to support The Believe Walk, and has since the Walk’s inception in 2008. “The purpose of the Stater Bros. Charities & Inland Women Fighting Cancer Believe Walk is to raise critical funds that support cancer-fighting organizations in this region. Through the generosity of sponsors and donors; the Believe Walk will directly impact lives, by providing funds to improve cancer care and support services for cancer patients and their families in the Inland Empire communities of Southern California.” As a part of Varner & Brandt’s support of the Believe Walk we founded and sponsor Bark & Believe, which is in its 8th year encouraging all Dogs to bring along their Humans to support survivors at the Walk. About 1000 dogs are now participating each year.
