Charity of the Month: Avon Breast Cancer Foundation

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.

September: In September we supported the Grand Tetons National Park Improvement Fund with a $125 donation. This will help fund needed improvements to the guest areas so many others can enjoy this beautiful park. This link will describe the project.


October Charity of the Month:

Avon Breast Cancer Foundation: New York Walk to End Breast Cancer

To be fully transparent we've been late the last two months writing the Charity of the Month posts. The New York 39 mile Walk to End Breast Cancer was held this weekend making this post a tad out-of-date.

A Team AllEars (our Disney-related charity running team) teammate of ours, Christine, participated in the event. We love seeing how our teammates continue to tie charity to their running/walking lifestyles.

As members of Team AllEars we helped raise +$330,000 over a five year period to help fight breast cancer and find a cure. We have been directly impacted by the disease - parents, other family members, and many friends have fought the disease. Some of them did not win their battles.

Even though the physical walk event is over, the fight against breast cancer isn't. Visit Christine's page and consider giving a donation.
