September 9: Trot Time

Have you been waiting for the right day to register for the Trot for Tillery 5k? TODAY IS THE DAY!

Two generous donors have agreed to give $10 per registrant if you register today. That means, when you pay $30, we actually receive $50! (Thanks, Sheyvon and Kathy!)

The Trot for Tillery 5k is an actual 5k held in Sylacauga, AL on October 8, but you can also participate as a virtual runner. As a virtual participant, you can register online and then send us a message to let us know you will participate from another location and we can mail you a shirt.

Participants will have the chance to trot alongside Tillery and the Phillips family.

Funds raised through the Trot for Tillery are used by the Phillips family to cover costs of living with a childhood cancer diagnosis. These costs include travel to and from Cincinnati, hotel stays, and dining in the hospital cafeteria or local restaurants while away from home. The funds also help the Phillips family survive as a primarily one income family. Alana was out of work for 2 years to be able to be a full time caregiver for Tillery during the critical times in her treatment. Now, Alana has returned to work in a part time capacity but cannot commit to something full time or permanent until Tillery is through the next major surgery in early 2017.

We’d like to raise enough money to also help us fund the launch of The TIL Foundation. Our goal is to become a 501(c)3 so that we can hold our own fundraising events to end childhood cancer.
