JILL'S DREAM TEAM
This team deserves special recognition this year.
Jill Di-Tommaso's brother Bill Romeo pulled this team together in 2016. They continued to be a MAJOR fundraiser in 2017.
He called it Jill's Dream Team because he wanted to help keep Jill's Dream alive. Their team raised $10,770 in 2017. We are so grateful to have Bill and his family continue to support Jill's Dream of finding a pre-screening tool for ovarian cancer.
Team BABS was started in 2012 to support their dear friend and family member Babs Wrighter as she fought her courageous battle against Ovarian Cancer. Babs was present that first year and vowed they would always be a vital part of this cause! Though she is no longer by their side, they continue on as promised. Each year they, and their ever-growing team of generous and dedicated people, walk for Babs and ALL women!
They have earned the Highest Fundraising Team Award for 2013 and 2014 and 2015. Their team has raised over $53,000 for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
Team Deneen was formed to support Carol Deneen in her fight. Their team has raised over $10,000 to fight ovarian cancer. They have won the most spirit award for 2014. They have some very creative ideas...keep your eyes peeled...you may be the next "ducking" victim.
Team Cindy holds a special place in the hearts of the girlygirl committee. Cindy McNaught was one of our committee members who lost her battle with ovarian cancer. We created a health tent that we named in honor of Cindy. She always said the research is what was keeping her alive. Thanks to TEAM CINDY for keeping her dream alive!!
Kyle's Rays Team earned our Highest Fundraising Award in 2009, 2010 and 2012.
