Almost there!!!
Oct 05, 2011 by Yvonne Webber



WOW!!!


Thanks to everyone who supported our opportunity drawing and our Souplantation FUNraiser! What a spectacular turnout! We each appreciate it so very much.

A HUGE thanks to our team member Debbie Kornberg for her hard work getting this fundraiser together! We couldn't have done it without you! <3



With this fundraiser, we are almost all at our goals. We are just a little bit short. If you know of someone who has been thinking about donating and hasn't gotten around to it yet - encourage them to get their donation in. We need to have all funds in by October 1st.



We had most of our team out this morning running along the 101 - What a beautiful overcast morning. Perfect running (or walking) weather. We all completed the 8 miles!


In just a few short weeks, we'll be heading to the city by the Bay for the BIG event. We want to thank everyone for their continued support! Each encouraging word and smile helps us along our way! We appreciate all of you!


San Francisco here we come.

Inspiration
Aug 07, 2011 by Yvonne Webber

Our team had a great run this morning along the 101. We are all putting in our miles during the week and we can see the progress. We started training barely making it 2 miles and now we are running 5 miles without any issues! Even our longer runs are not such a big deal. We are proud of how far we have come.


This morning before our run, our Mentor Susan shared a mission moment with us to remind us why we are training and raising money.


One story is about a woman, Marla, on Team in Training. Her is her story: “As Marla was bringing her children home from school one day in 2009, her daughter Maddie told her that her 2nd grade classmate and friend, Ayanna, had been diagnosed with leukemia. She knew she needed to help, that they needed to give this family all the support they could. Ayanna and her family inspired her to start The Caring Tree and they were able to help the family with many financial necessities and support. Being in their lives has been a huge blessing to her and her family. Imelda, Ayanna's mom, has so much strength, caring for all three of her children during this time when so many weeks were spent by Ayanna's side during radiation and chemotherapy at Children's Hospital. Ayanna is SO spunky and always ready to give hugs and smile...and with that awesome attitude, too!


It's now been 2 years and Ayanna continues her long battle to beat cancer with a smile even on tough days. Imelda continues to amaze Marla, holding it all together despite the many long days she has. Through it all, however, they remain strong and courageous. Ayanna takes it all in stride and enjoys just being a kid as much as possible. She always makes Marla smile. Bringing their community together to support them inspired her, but what fills her heart with joy is that they are showing their children how a community can help each other. No matter how small or large the contribution is, every contribution makes a difference to these kids who are battling for their lives.



Kids like Ayanna, our Honored Teammate Jonas and Susan’s son Idan are the reason we are all participating. They are the reason we are running and raising money to find a cure.


How can you help?

1 – Please help us out by making a donation to our team.

Halfway there!
Jul 22, 2011 by Yvonne Webber

It is hard to believe that we are at the halfway point for our training and fundraising.


I think most of us are feeling good about our training and will be able to make it through the end.


We just want to thank everyone who has donated thus far and remind those who haven't had the time to donate yet, that there is still time to donate. It's as easy as clicking on our link! Don't be shy . . .


Thanks again, we appreciate all of the support!


Debbie, Debbie, Edit, Patrice, Susan , Tami and Yvonne
