The Valerie Clawson "Strength In Numbers" Award
The Valerie Clawson "Strength In Numbers" Fund, was originally a fundraiser for her family, to raise funds for Jason (husband) Cooper and Boston (sons) in aiding them with expenses from Valerie's hard fought battle with Colon Cancer. From the start, The Clawson's received an out pouring of support both financially and emotionally during this time of grief. Yet, their first notion was to find a way to give back to the community, because of amount of charity given to them. Valerie, though in severe pain, cared more about those that came to serve her, than her own suffering.
This is the credo of the TCM Foundation, which raises money for those in need of financial aid for expenses caused by chronic disease. Considering that the TCM Foundation hadn't had a name to put behind this grant, that they distribute with every event that they do, Valerie Clawson and her family, kept coming up every time.
So now The TCM Foundation would like to announce that the nominee who receives these funds, will be known to have Valerie's spirit and her families tenacity have inspired the name of the grant to be known as "The Valerie Clawson 'Strength in Numbers' Fund.
This Fund will be used to hit the goal of 1000 families/individuals/or contributions to organization in need of aid in regards to educating, training or personally dealing with a chronic illness. Its to inspire a community health initiative that was influenced by the methodology of Greg Glassmans' Crossfit, as well as the personal experiences with chronic disease of the foundations founder and CEO, Chase Chaco Comrie.
This family has been selected because of their struggle with chronic disease, and need some financial help to continue to live a prosperous and long life.
