Recent Changes at TBBCF
Typically it's quiet at TBBCF during the first quarter. This year, however, that was not the case. Changes in the Walk Leadership Team and TBBCF staffing made for an active quarter.
In January, with a vacancy in the Walk Chair role, past walk chairs, Lisa Carroll, Pat Newborg and Ellen Swercewski volunteered to lead the 10th Anniversary Walk. In Ellen's words, "Lisa, Pat and I are very excited and honored to co-chair our 10th Anniversary Walk." It goes without saying that this was great news for the Foundation. More

Logan's Promise honors its Founder, Norma Logan. Her promise in establishing this great organization was to direct 100% of gross fundraising dollars to breast cancer research and for the Foundation to be financially transparent so that everyone, from sponsors and donors to volunteers and walk participants, can plainly see that the organization is meeting its target. We are proud to bring you this edition of Logan's Promise.
