Team William 5K
Dear Team William 5K participants and supporters,
We want to give you a 5K update and thank you for your continued support over the years. Thanks to your race participation and contributions, the Team William 5K (TW5K) has been able to raise over $24,000 to help support 12 children through the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center Reading Clinic, and contribute to the Team William Discovery Research Grant. The 5K has been a great success for many years, and has tangibly influenced the lives of children with Down syndrome, as well as help pave the way for future Down syndrome research through the Discovery Grant.
Now I, along with other devoted TW5K organizers, find it necessary to take a hiatus from 5K activities to reflect on the organizational structure of the race and consider new options for leadership and involvement. In the meantime, we still want you as a partner in TEAM WILLIAM. We invite you to:
- RUN the Country Music Marathon or Half Marathon April 27, 2013 and support TEAM WILLIAM by gaining sponsors. Andrea McDermott Sanders (Founder of TEAM WILLIAM) will be running the marathon for the 9th consecutive year and would love for you to join her and other friends and family.
- GIVE a direct online donation on our website, www.teamwilliam.org or mail your gift to: Vanderbilt Kennedy Center, Gift Processing ATTN: Team William Endowment PMB 407727, 2301 Vanderbilt Place Nashville, TN 37240-7727
Again, we are deeply grateful for your support, and with your help we hope to continue providing opportunities to people with Down syndrome for many years to come!
All the Best,
(5K Race Coordinator)
