Charity of the Month: Avon Walk for Breast Cancer - Deb Wills

Charity of the Month is a 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: In March we sponsored St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital / St. Jude Heros to support our friend Michael and to honor his family member AJ #slyestrong6. We will donate $125 to St. Jude's Heros to help advance research for childhood diseases.

April's Charity:

This is where it all started. Teamtizzel.com owes its creation to our friend Deb Wills and Team All Ears. Remember this flashback from 2011?

Being part of Team All Ears was one of the most rewarding experiences of our lives. For the five years we were involved with TAE we helped raise over $330,000 to fight breast cancer. All of the guests in Holly's race videos (running partners) are from TAE. We've made some excellent friends from the group and keep-up with many teammates through Facebook. We are never alone when visiting Disney Parks.

Deb is celebrating 30 years of beating breast cancer. We are proud to support Avon in her honor, in honor of friends and family that have faced the disease, and in honor of Dave's mom whom lost her battle in 1989.

From Deb's fundraising site:

This year I humbly celebrate 30 years as a survivor! Not bad for someone who was given a 50/50 chance at 5 years. I am so blessed.

To all who have donated thank you SO much. To those of you who want to and haven't yet, please do so today!

Since 2001, with your continued support, I have raised over $675,000 in this fight! Together we CAN and DO make a difference.

Join the fight and make a donation to help save lives!
