The school year has not even started and already, I have had two families contact me about their desire to organize service projects! Georgetown is truly an incredible community of caring people.
This Sunday, I would like to tell you about one project organized by Ashley Tiesman, a 5th grader this coming school year. You may recall that Ashley brought the school community together last year for PINK WEEK to raise money for Susan G. Komen Foundation.
The Foundation was so very impressed by her work as a then fourth grade student, that they made an exception to the age limit rule and are allowing her to Chair a Team for this year’s Race for the Cure! Ashley has established the team and it is called the Georgetown PINK PANTHERS.
We, Ashley and myself, would love to have as many Georgetown students, staff, family and friends join us in the race/walk for a cure on September 26, 2009. There are three ways to participate:
- Join our TEAM by visiting PINK PANTHERS. The cost is $23 per adult and $12 per child. Each registrant receives a t-shirt.
- WALK with us without joining the team. During these tough times, we know that not everyone can spend this kind of money. We would feel honored to have you WALK with us and the hundreds of survivors and supporters during this incredible event.
- If you are not available to walk or join, please consider making a donation to our team. We have a goal of $1,000, and believe with even small amounts from many we can make this amount.
Thank you for your support!
