Sunny Side Up – Warriors for Tim
This past Thursday was a great day at my office. Together with a few other co-workers, I helped to organize the 2nd Annual Sunny Side Up Breakfast Benefit to raise money and awareness for Warriors for Tim. Warriors for Tim is an organization that was setup in honor of the son of a co-worker of mine. Last year Tim lost his battle with H1N1. Tim fought hard for 4 1/2 months down at CHOP in Philadelphia. Warriors for Tim’s main goal is to raise funds to promote awareness about the urgent need for organ and tissue donors. They are currently working towards a $100,000 fundraising goal that will fund a fitness center at the new Gift of Life Family House which is under construction in Philadelphia.
Our company banded together to make over 100 breakfast sandwiches and raise over $1,200 for this cause. That means there will be a piece of fitness equipment that Siemens employees in Blue Bell are responsible for purchasing. How exciting is that?
If you are not an organ donor, I would strongly recommend that you consider taking this step. If you live in PA, NJ, or DE, you can easily sign up here. And if you’re interested in donating to this worthwhile cause, you can donate on-line here.
I’m truly thankful for the amazing people I get to work with every day. And I look forward to more adventures that we will have together in the future.
Here’s another picture to give you a feel for the day.
