For 13 enthusiastic Verizon volunteers, being part of the “Gray Miracle Team” during the recent 5K Brain Tumor Walk on Governor’s Island in New York City meant supporting teammate, Carrie Gray who was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor.
“My Verizon friends have been so supportive and always ask me how they can help,” she said. “I heard some advertising about the Walk one day and realized that getting involved would be the proactive thing to do.”
“I thought that if my family, friends and Verizon colleagues walked with me, we could contribute to the National Brain Tumor Society’s trials for new treatments and research to help find a cure for brain tumors.”
As part of her fundraising efforts, Carrie, an executive director in Verizon Enterprise Solutions, reached out to the Verizon Foundation Team Champion program. She and her teammates raised over $27,000 before a company match of $10,000. They raised an outstanding total of $37,000.
For their efforts, Verizon received the Top Company Award from the National Brain Tumor Society.
Way to go Gray Miracle Team!
