Omaha, Nebraska

The Journal featured AU's own Randall Carney releasing a flock of homing pigeons in the infield of Plattsmouth High School's football stadium at the Relay For Life event. They had a record turnout of 362 participants. The relay raised $60,000 for cancer research.

Randall released several dozen white homing pigeons symbolizing hope and determination in the fight against cancer. He operates a business called White Flight, which releases pigeons at weddings, funerals and various charity events like Relay For Life. Randall has registered, pedigreed homing pigeons that receive the finest care and training for ultimate health and well being.

Randall himself has a personal connection with Relay For Life, as he too is a cancer survivor. Participating in the Relay For Life is very meaningful to him. "It's rewarding to help out any way I can," said Carney.
