Think Cure Volunteer Experience

Posted Aug 24 2009 10:19pm





Volunteering for the Think Cure at the Dodgers Stadium was great!
We all arrived ready to go and ready to start helping in anything we could.
As we arrived we were greeted by Ingrid and Jason who then gave us a Think Cure
volunteer t-shirts. Then we were given jobs and we started to get busy.

Jobs were either inputting data into the computer, collecting online donations, holding off the crowds that were forming to have a picture taken with the one and only Fernando Valenzuela.
Tommy Lasorda was also there taking pictures with fans. Marco, Victor, Joe,Jen were invited to go see the radio-a-thon in one of the suites were they were taking donations by phone and online.
The atmosphere was so exciting that you were just excited for being there helping a good cause that was close to all of our hearts.
There were 10 of us in total who volunteered. We all agreed that it would be something we would do next year and maybe we can get more family members to volunteer. DLP was so excited to be there it didn't matter what they needed help in she was ready for the challenge. DLP and Turd gave 2hours more than asked and it was appreciate it by many.
Thank you both for that.
The kids had a ball watching the game and eating all that the Dodgers had to offer like Dodger Dogs, Soda, Pretzels, etc, etc.. they were all on their best behavior. They didn't have a job at the time for Marco when we arrived so they told him to go enjoy the game and he did, you didn't have to ask him twice.
Good Job to All : Leezy, Lazy T, One Day At A Time, S3U5, Victor,Joe,Jen,DLP,Marco .
Can't wait till next year.
Happy to report that the THINK CURE raised 107% of their goal over $214,000.00

Marco Update: Marco has been doing really good. All his hair has grown out and he is looking really good. He will be going next Monday for a CT Scan and blood work. Our fingers are crossed and with hopes that all will continue to look good for Marco. I will post the results to the test next week.

Again THANK YOU to all for volunteering....GREAT JOB!
Enjoy the video from our experience at Think Cure 2009!
