AKA TBO & Love Jones for Life
Team TBO & Love Jones For Life
On March 8, 2014 Tau Beta Omega chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. will collaborate with Love Jones for Life and the American Kidney Fund in a virtual walk to raise money and awareness for those living with kidney disease. Our virtual walk will start at 12:00 noon at Reuben Ingold Park. 4400 Mt. Verbon Dr. Los Angeles, CA 90043.
Tau Beta Omega will walk in honor of Nichelle Jones, a dynamic young lady who has used her personal challenge with kidney disease as a platform to educate others of this very important fight.
At the age of 18, when she should have been focused on cheerleading, prom, graduation and fun, Nichelle learned that she was dealing with a disease that compromised her immune system and caused kidney failure. Five years later, Nichelle is currently on dialysis and has been encouraged by her physicians to find a living donor on her own because she has an O positive blood type and could be on the waiting list for 10 years. Nichelle started the Love Jones For Life foundation in her name to raise funds to help find a kidney and to increase awareness about the need for transplants and to help others in similar situations.
Nichelle will be selling Love Jones for Life T-Shirts for the walk for $20. Proceeds from T-Shirt sales will be donated to Love Jones for Life. If you would like to purchase a t-shirt, please contact Niki Jones at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Saturday, March 1st.
Tau Beta Omega is asking each participant to donate $5 upon registration for donation to the American Kidney Fund.
Thank you in advance for your suppport!! Please come out and bring a friend.
