Forward4Tobi Team (as of 9-3-19)
Julia Soriano (Team Captain)
Why you should join our team or donate:
Ever since I was little, Forward4Tobi has had a big impact on my life. The foundation was started in memory of my mom's dear friend Tobi. She was an important part of my mom's life and the lives of many others as well. After Tobi passed away, the Forward4Tobi Foundation was started to help women with breast cancer pay for groceries, child care, rent, etc., so they could focus simply on getting better. Throughout the years of my life with this foundation largely imprinted on me, I spent many weekends going to charity walks/races, helped carry shirts and water bottles to fundraisers, and I was even the only one in the audience when my mom would practice her speeches for big events.
So, when the time finally came to choose an organization for my charity project, the decision was easy... Forward4Tobi!
I have great passion for running and for the Forward4Tobi Foundation; both share a special place in my heart. That's why on September 28, 2019, I will captain a team to run a 5K while raising money for a cause that I am really passionate about.
There are three ways to be part of this amazing event.
