Tuesday Team Update

Florence Forth provides an opportunity to show we are all superheroes.  Registering and showing up to run on March 5th is a powerful sign of recovery and triumph.

Asking others to join you in the fight against AE can be your next “Cape Moment”. Last year, teams of superheroes — some with capes, some without — raised over $30,000 to fight this disease.

Consider joining an existing team or form your own. Each Tuesday, we dedicate a blog to these teams.
