I have decided to run The Fox Valley Half Marathon on September 16th. I will be running for an amazing cause The Colette A. Miles Foundation also known as Colette’s Crew. The mission of Colette’s Crew – “To provide comfort and support to those battling cancer.” We are 60 runners strong and our team fundraising goal is $50,000.
This year, my son Jack is running with me in support of this wonderful organization. I am honored and feel so amazing that he has chosen to run for this cause along side me!
This year I have also had the honor to get to know a wonderful woman who has been a recipient of some of Colette’s Crews support, and it has changed my life. I feel like I am the lucky one to have been able to help and support her and her family with the help of Colette’s Crew.
I have also witnessed as Colette’s Crew has extended a hand of friendship to these families and the joy that it has brought.
These are some ways TCAMF has made a difference.
· Child Care during treatments
· Cleaning Service for their home
· King Size Bed for patient during their healing journey so they could spend quality time with family.
· Coverage of out of pocket medical expenses
· TCAMF funds the Care Givers Workshop at The Livingwell Cancer Center
· Meals delivered to patients undergoing treatment – Fox Valley Food For Health
Helping a patient with her move by supplying volunteers and moving supplies
During the past 5 years 90 cents of every dollar received went directly to the cause. You can feel good about the money given to Colette’s Crew because every dollar is used to its fullest to help families diagnosed with all types of cancer.
Thank you for considering helping me make a difference in the lives of these courageous people and their families and help Colette’s Crew to walk alongside these people and their families when they need it most. If you know anyone that can benefit from this type of support please reach out to me.
