Becky's Brigade marches on ...

The 2014 Portland Brain Tumor Walk will be Sunday, July 27, starting from Pioneer Courthouse Square.

For the past three years, a CareOregon team has participated in the walk in memory of one of our co-workers, Becky Crain.

Becky, who was a claims supervisor on the 8th floor, was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2009.

There are no registration fees for the walk. However, participants are required to register in order to join the walk and gain access to event activities. You also are welcome to become a “virtual” participant if you’re unable to attend the day of the walk, by making a financial contribution.

You can support the National Brain Tumor Society by going to the Portland page of the website and searching for the Becky’s Brigade team. Or you can purchase Jeans Day Stickers that will be sold through July 31, and good through the remainder of the year.

Cost of the stickers is:
1 sticker for $2
5 stickers for $8 ($1.60 each)
10 stickers for $12 ($1.20 each
30 stickers for $25 (83¢ each - BEST DEAL!)

Stickers are available for purchase from:
Lise Bernstein, 8th Floor (Claims)
Paula Lewitz, 8th Floor (Claims)
Patti Guynes, 9th Floor (Customer Service)

Checks should be made payable to “NBTS” and sent to:
National Brain Tumor Society
Portland Brain Tumor Walk
55 Chapel Street, Suite 200
Newton, MA 02458

Please let Lise, Paula or Patti know if you’re interested in joining the fundraising efforts for Becky’s Brigade.

Stay tuned for the next Brain Tumor Walk fundraising event, a 50/50 raffle in June!
