Girls about Town – Going Pink for Komen
Think Pink! Not as in Valentine’s Day, but rather let’s think pink as in Race for the Cure! The 24th Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure is April 18. What better way to pink out than to train and take part in this great cause? Yes, it’s the month of chocolate, romance and Champagne, but we need to think ahead. So grab your pink workout gear and join us in what promises to be the largest team to help fight breast cancer in Central Indiana.
Our very own Tom Britt, publisher of the TownePost Network, is teaming up with Toni Folzenlogel to co-captain this team. Folzenlogel (sounds like “frozen bagel”) has been involved with this event for years. She’s excited to join forces with Tom to raise what we hope will be a great amount of money! An enthusiastic Toni told us, “Tom makes everything fun, and I’m sure this will be no exception!”
Here’s the rub… while they may have fantastic resumes in the publication and design biz, they are no runners! They do know how to have a good time though! Their training will NOT take place in a gym: Their idea is a little more fun. They want to have “training sessions” leading up to the race at local watering holes. What? Raising money for a good cause AND meeting in local bars: This sounds like our kind of race!
Donning our workout gear (for no real reason as it turned out), we joined the kickoff party with our corporate team, Townies for Tatas. At this first of many “training sessions,” we raised our glasses pledging our commitment to the success of the inaugural Townies for Tatas Race for the Cure.
Our goal? Raise over $10,000 and have a good time doing it! Joining in on this fun is easy. “Like” the Townies for Tatas Facebook page to get notifications on all upcoming training sessions. Go ahead, press that “Like” button. Visit TowniesForTatas.com to join our team or donate!
Not a runner? No worries, neither are we! We don’t just need runners, we need donations! Any support in the fight against breast cancer is most welcome. Whether you choose to donate anonymously or in someone’s honor or memory, all online contributions are a simple click away. There’s even an option to donate $24 in honor of the Central Indiana Race for the Cure, celebrating its 24th year.
Wanna join our team? Yay! Help us reach our goal to be the biggest team possible to run the 2015 race! It’s only $30 to participate, and includes a Race shirt and bib number. Survivors can join for $25 and receive a pink hat, a pink survivor shirt and a pink bib number for the race. Can’t make it for Race Day? Join us in spirit! For $35 you can Sleep in for the Cure! You’ll receive a Race shirt and Sn00ze bib, which will be mailed to you after the Race!
Remember, it’s your entry fee that gets us to the starting line, and it’s your fundraising effort that will help us find a cure. We need you to take the challenge to raise funds and see the impact you can make. You can easily give an additional gift or invite a few of your friends to donate or join this team! So you are already on a team? AWESOME! You can still sign up for your personal team and join our corporate team, Townies for Tatas. Both teams will get credit for the funds you raise.
Put your pink on, and let’s join forces and put the fun in fundraising this year! Make sure to join us at the training sessions! We’ll be posting pics and updates of this team’s training “progress” over the next few months. Bring a friend or come by yourself. You’ll have fun either way. As always… CHEERS to the Townies for Tatas FUNdraiser!
