10 Years

Happy New Year!!!

Team Tiara is proud to be an organization you can feel good about supporting. To that end, I’d like to share just a few highlights from 2014 — and then give you a glimpse into what 2015 holds.

Without further adieu, I’m excited, proud, thrilled to announce the 2014 Rachel B. Wickman Metastatic Breast Cancer Research Grant!! Tonight I’m happy to share that Team Tiara’s grant will give $15,000 to support metastatic breast cancer research being done by Dr. Priscilla Brastianos at Dana Farber Institute in Massachusetts. Those of you who know our Rachel know just how dear to our hearts this is. Two years ago Team Tiara pledged to raise $100,000 for metastatic breast cancer research. With this grant we reach the $40,000 mark — almost halfway there.

This year, Team Tiara is also supporting The Rose in Houston. Through The Rose we are able to fund mammograms and breast health services for the uninsured / underinsured.

In 2014 we were able to lend financial assistance to 16 different families who are in the thick of the fight against breast cancer. We were able to financially stand in the gap and help fill a deficit created by lost wages, prescriptions, co-pays, etc. for those families.

We continue to participate in the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer 3-Day, raising over $63,000 this year. Once again, we were recognized as a Top 5 team on the Dallas walk.

Personally, I was thrilled to be joined by Abbie and Kait in their first year as members of the Youth Corps. Both girls exceeded the $500 they were required to raise, and Kait was recognized as being in the Top 5 Youth Corps Fundraisers in Dallas.

Team Tiara continues to be an all-volunteer organization. No one on our team draws a salary.

Looking forward to 2015….

This year will be another milestone year for Team Tiara. 2015 marks our 10th year to participate in the Komen 3-Day. At 60 miles a year, that’s a lot of miles. Our theme this year is “Homecoming.” Think of it as a 10-year reunion served up with a side of Babe’s Banana Pudding. It’s going to be awesome.

And this year my Abbie-girl will walk with me.

I can’t wait.

If you have EVER thought about walking with Team Tiara, THIS is the year!!

In 2015 Team Tiara will cross the $1 Million mark in fundraising. When Lisa and I started this adventure we didn’t dream this would ever happen!!

Also in 2015, Team Tiara will continue to independently fund metastatic breast cancer research, help spread “pink fairy dust” to our Pink Warriors, and do our best to find a cure for breast cancer once and for all.

As you consider the myriad of options available to you for end-of-year giving, please consider Team Tiara as a recipient. Please help us continue this fight. It’s so easy to help.
