Team Zion (Zion Lutheran Church-Boalsburg, PA)
In May of this year it will be eight years since we lost our brother, Todd Miller, to brain cancer.
Todd was both a congregation member and respected council member at Zion Lutheran Church in Boalsburg, Pennsylvania.
Todd's mantra during his battle with cancer was: "To God alone be the Glory". During his own fight, Todd made every effort to help advance cancer research.
Todd's family formed Team Miller in 2010 to honor the memory of their beloved family member and to continue Todd's crusade to beat brain tumors.
Here at Zion Lutheran Church we formed Team Zion to show Zion Lutheran Church's support for the Miller family; to honor Todd's commitment to God, family and community; and to support the cause of finding a cure for brain cancer.
This February our congregation lost Charles Walls to this same dreaded disease. In his passing we are again reminded of the importance of trying to find that cure. It was Chuck’s plan to participate in the race this year and through his family’s designation of the Race for Hope for his memorial contributions, he will be part of this year’s event.
Please help us fight the fight by supporting the Race for Hope.
o Participate in the race. It's fun, inspiring and scenic. The course is a flat three-mile route between the White House and the Capitol building. Click on the Join Team Zion's Team tab.
o Donate. During March and April, we will be fund raising for the event so all of you who can't participate in the race will have a chance to show your support through your donations. Click on the Donate Now tab; or make checks payable to: Zion Lutheran Church "Race for Hope" and mail to 105 Old Boalsburg Road, PO Box 9, Boalsburg, PA 16827. You may designate your gift "in memory of" or "in honor of" if you wish.
o Share this story with a family member, friend or neighbor to help us take the fight to the next level! Ask them if they would be willing to run, walk or donate.
We know you have the choice of many great causes and charities to support. We are excited about beating brain tumors because that would take this disease out of the killer category and place it in the history books with scarlet fever, polio and malaria; all of which were once serious treats, but are now cured or well-managed.
There are 700,000 people in the US living with a brain tumor. This year 210,000 more will be diagnosed. Please support our efforts for all of these people, their caregivers, family and friends who have been or will be affected by their diagnosis.
Team Zion will sincerely appreciate any support you can provide. Your gift means so much!
