Recruiting for the cause!

The Ty Louis Campbell Foundation is growing at a rapid pace, and we are so proud.  We have an incredible staff of dedicated volunteers and a spectacular group of interns, but we still need help.  We are looking to hire additional staff who can commit a significant amount of time per week.  However, as a nonprofit organization we are choosing not to offer any salaries.  Lou and I want to maintain a 100% volunteer-based organization as long as possible, so that we can promise every penny of every dollar donated continues to go directly to childhood cancer research. 

We are looking to fill two positions.  This would be a truly rewarding passion project for someone who has the time but doesn’t require the income.  We are accepting resumes for the positions and applicants must be able to commit a minimum of 20 hours per week, 15 of which will be working out of the office in Carmel, NY.  Applicants must be proficient in MS Office (including Excel).   Daily tasks will include marketing and promotions, event planning, social media management and donor relations.  Please send your resumes to Lou at

We realize this is a big request, but we are in a position where we can’t keep up with the exciting events on the horizon, so we wanted to share our needs with our supporters to see if we could recruit additional team members.   For Ty, and all the children, I look forward to our growing family at the TLC Foundation!

Run for Ty and all Kids with Brain Cancer
Last year I said, "Ty can't run, but maybe you can?" and what followed was incredible.  We pulled together an outstanding team for the upcoming Moving Towards A Cure 5K in NYC, and I hope we can do the same this year!   This 5K is hosted by Miles for Hope (an incredible brain tumor organization) and all of the funds raised for this event will be donated to Ty's neurosurgeons at the Weill Cornell Children's Brain Tumor Project.  They are doing amazing things there, and it is all for the children. 

The run is in Flushing Meadows Park this year (Queens) so I am hoping to see all of my Long Island friends there!  To register, please follow these instructions:
- CLICK HERE to access the registration site.
- Click on the "register here" button to the left.
- Select the option to "join a team"
- Find "team superty" in the dropdown menu, and it's pretty easy to navigate from there :)

For those of you who are local to Westchester, Putnam and Dutchess counties, stay tuned.  The first annual TY-athlon is scheduled for September in Mahopac, and will include a 5K for those who prefer not to bike/swim.  When my sister Theresa signed up to do her first ever triathlon in Pawling on June 1st, I hope she didn't think it might also be her last!  :)
