Welcome to the Patty's Posse Team Page. As many of you know, my lifelong friend, Patty Moncrief, lost her battle w/ Glioblastoma on Oct 3, 2017.
As the 1 year anniversary is approaching, our hearts are still heavy with grief. One way to overcome grief, is to help others. I know Patty would want that of us. Here is our opportunity, to help others while we honor her. Please join Patty's family & friends & run, jog or walk in the SE Brain Tumor's Race for Research on Saturday, September 22. We will have a tent w/our team name at the event. Please plan to meet there prior to the race. Even if you are unable to participate, you can still help our cause by donating to Team Patty's Posse. If you have any questions, please email Susie Neel @ firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm participating in the 19th annual Race For Research which occurs on Saturday, September 22, 2018 at the Pinnacle lot located in Atlantic Station near downtown Atlanta. GA. It is a 5K run, 1K fun-run/walk and a fundraising event which raises money to support brain tumor research. If you've not participated before, there's no time like the present.
You can participate by running (or walking) the course route along with me, by helping me spread the word about this fundraising event, or by making a donation toward my fundraising effort. If you're not a runner, don't worry, many of the registrants are not runners. Instead many of the registrants are brain tumor patients who are just happy to be alive and happy to be able to participate in this event.
Just so you know, the Southeastern Brain Tumor Foundation is recognized as as a 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit organization and as a public charity. Donations to the SBTF in support of my fundraising efforts are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. Your support will have a positive impact on the life of a brain tumor patient because it generate awareness about this disease and will help to fund much needed brain tumor research.
Sadly, many of us don't realize how scary a brain tumor diagnosis is until someone we know is told "you have a brain tumor" or "you have brain cancer".
Oh, and one more thing, did you know you can double your donation through employer matching programs? Be sure to check with your Human Resources Department to determine if your company will match your donation. If they say yes, you can double your donation with just a few clicks of your mouse.
