First Tia 5k Race for Health a Huge Success!!

The Tia Foundation’s first 5k Race for Health took place on Saturday, March 27, 2010.  Over 40 participants (like Thunderbird student Savinay Chandrasekhar, pictured above) came to support Tia’s mission and help out the cause.

Runners, walkers, and some of the rugby players from the field who came to partake in our BBQ helped us to raise nearly $2,000, enough to provide healthcare for almost 400 people living in rural Mexico.

Thanks again to everyone who came to the event, especially all our fantastic volunteers :  Efrain Diaz and family, Nate Harris, Alex Harris, Betsy Cotter, Angela Rodela.   Of course, we would be remiss if we failed to thank the staff at Thunderbird School for Global Management, especially the guys in facilities and our catering friends at Chartwells who helped us with the BBQ , which sold out because the food was so good.  WAY TO GO KATE DENNEY!  SHE REALLY PLANNED AND FACILITATED AN AWESOME AND FUN EVENT!

We hope to see you all again next year!
