Hats Off For Steph
Organized by: Marissa MacIntyre
Our colleagues's daughter, Stephanie Bader, was diagnosed with Glioblastoma (an aggressive type of brain tumor) a little over a year ago. As a team, we have been following her journey as she fights this vicious disease. We need to do something to help with this fight- too many families suffer from cancer diagnoses and this is our chance to give back. Steph and her family have touched so many lives as they continue to share her story. Just recently, Steph, along with other children recieving treatment at CHOP were featured in a beautiful music video with Sara Bareilles and Cyndi Lauper. The video is inspiring and reminds us that every child deserves a chance to dance, sing, be happy, and be brave. It is for this reason that we are committing to a " crazy hat walk" on December 10th . Our team will be completing a 2 mile walk on a freezing cold December morning while wearing crazy hats. We hope you sponsor us as we do this walk. All money raised will go directly to Stephanie Bader and her amazing family to help alleviate the financial and emotional burden of this disease.
