Ty can't run but maybe you can? Join our team!

As promised, here are the details on how you can join our team for the upcoming "Moving Towards a Cure" 5K in New York City on July 21st.  The SuperTy team is recruiting as many willing and able participants as possible.  The registration fee is minimal, and you can pledge whatever fundraising amount you wish so there little pressure in that aspect.  If you can't run the 5K, but still want to volunteer at the race, CLICK HERE to fill out a volunteer form. We would be so honored to have your help.

A large percentage of the funds raised by the hosting charity - Miles for Hope - will go directly to Ty's neurosurgery team at Weill Cornell's "Children's Brain Tumor Project."  Their research specifically targets rare, pediatric brain tumors.  AT/RT (Ty's cancer) being one that they are looking at closely.  Lou and I feel very strongly about raising money for the Children's Brain Tumor Project because we live every day knowing that - statistically - it is likely Ty's cancer will return.  We pray every second of every day for more effective treatment options (with less brutal side effects) should that day ever come - which it won't. 

Here is the information on how to join Team SuperTy as a runner:
  • Visit http://www.braintumorevents.org/newyorkcity2012
  • On the upper left hand side, there is a gray button that reads Register Here. Click it.
  • Scroll down on the waiver and hit "I agree"
  • On the next page, select "Join a team" then select "SuperTy".  Hit "Continue"
  • Fill out the form and create an account with a unique username and password
  • Complete payment for the $25 registration fee (and any kick-off donation you want to make) by including a credit card and submitting for payment
  • You are all set!  Now you can edit your page, add photos or videos and start an email campaign to solicit donations.  It is all pretty easy to navigate.

If you can't attend the event but still wish to make a donation to our team:
  • Visit http://www.braintumorevents.org/newyorkcity2012
  • On the upper left hand side, there is a red button that reads Donate to Participant. Click it.
  • Enter "Cindy Campbell" in the search fields (or any of our team members, right now I'm the only one registered.
  • Click on my name when it appears (Pawling, NY)
  • When my page comes up, you will see a button on the upper right hand side that reads "Give Now".  Click it and follow the prompts from there
  • If you don't wish to donate online, there will be a link to print out a form as well. 

Now that I've posted the information, I am excited to see who joins us!  I know my sister's family will be running alongside us (even my nephews who are only 7 and 8).  I also heard from the very talented Lauren Brill and her cousin Becky Welch - both of whom are interested in running for Ty.  Lauren created http://www.doubtnoone.com/ to tell the stories of the most inspiring athletes you'll ever see.  Her videos are touching and heartfelt.  Thank you Lauren and Becky!!  Bring your friends :)

Ty had another great day today.  He was so happy, which means everyone was so happy.  I have so many cute stories to share, but my eyes won't allow me to look at the screen anymore.  Soon I will add information about the 10K in October, as well.  Thank you so much for all of your support!
