Exciting News!!!

Hello Friends and Family!

I wanted to take a moment to let you know about some AWESOME things happening with Team Tiara!

In the five years that we've been walking in the Breast Cancer 3-Day, God has led us to cross paths with many people who have been touched by breast cancer and need help. And over time, we've all come to realize that this isn't just about three days of walking to find a CURE for breast cancer. It's become far more than that -- it's become a ministry.

With that calling, we began to realize it was time for Team Tiara to "grow up" and become an organization that could offer "real time" help to those who are hurting. To make that possible, we have become a non-profit corporation -- operating under section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code.

Team Tiara will still be major force in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure! We currently have 52 walkers signed up for 2010, and are well on our way to raising our goal of $250,000!

At the same time, our new non-profit status gives us the flexibility to be the hands and feet of Jesus by meeting needs God brings our way. I can't tell you how excited I am about that! This is something that has been on my "radar screen" for over two years! And to see it come to fruition is so, so very cool!

What does this mean for you? We'll still need your help. Finding a CURE is as important as it's ever been. As always, you'll be able to donate online at www.the3day.org/goto/teamtiara. Or you can donate to the 3-Day with a check made out to the "Breast Cancer 3-Day."

If you choose to donate to our mission, you can make your check out to "Team Tiara."

Either way, your donations are tax-deductible. And either way, your donations will be used to fund research, education, awareness and services.

I know this is getting a bit long, but please hang with me a couple of seconds more. We need your help with a couple more things.

First, please keep us in your prayers. Please pray that everything we do and every dollar we raise is used to glorify God. Without Him, we have nothing.

Second, we need your recipes. We are publishing a calendar and a recipe book as part of our fundraising, and while we've got the calendar under control, we need some help with the recipes. You'll find more about that on the next post down.

Thank you so much for all you do to support us! Team Tiara could never have made it this far wtihout you and your love and support. We're not done yet -- we've got a lot to do. But I want you to know that you are loved and appreciated.

I walk for my girls,
