April Charity of the Month: Team Victoria and National Brain Tumor Society

Charity of the Month is the newest way Team Tizzel is helping to support some very worthy organizations. As part of this program, we will dedicate a post to a charity that we will sponsor through the month by donating Holly's training run money.

March Results: In March we sponsored Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital and our friend Michelle's efforts to support them by running the upcoming Boston Marathon. Spaulding helped many of the Boston Marathon victims last year. Our donation of $100 will be matched by a corporate matching gift (you can donate too through this link).

April's Charity:
National Brain Tumor Society via Team Victoria and the Race for Hope - Washington, DC

Victoria is the daughter of our friend William (a Team AllEars member). She has been in the hospital recently for brain tumor treatment. She's tackling this head-on like a champion! Very brave. We invite you to read more and, if you can, lend financial support to their fundraising efforts. Dave has an aunt whom has also undergone multiple treatments for reoccurring brain tumors so this is a cause close-to-home for us.

Victoria is a smart, vivacious, beautiful nine year old who has a juvenile pilocytic astrocytoma (JPA) – which is a grade 1 brain tumor. She has under gone multiple surgeries and is about to start chemotherapy to address continued regrowth. She would like to invite you to join her and her family in Race for Hope to show support and celebrate her in the fight against these tumors.

Race for Hope is a Family fun 5k walk/run in Washington, DC on May 4th at Freedom Plaza. All proceeds from this race go directly to research on all related brain tumor cancers and illness. This is an amazing event that provides much needed attention and funds for life saving brain tumor research and advancement in medical breakthroughs for children and adults with all types of brain tumors.

Please go to www.CureBrainTumors.org, click register, join team, and type Team Victoria to join our team (or use the button below). There will be fun, music, and food for all participants. You may also run ‘virtually’ with us if you are not in the DC area.

Thank you all and we look forward to seeing you at Race for Hope!!
