2021 Komen More Than Pink Walk

The MORE THAN PINK Walk is Komen’s signature fundraising event. It’s a day where we can put aside everything else in our lives and share our stories, our laughter, and our tears to raise money that saves lives while we celebrate survivors, those living with breast cancer, and honor loved ones lost. TI has put together a team for this virtual walk and is asking TIAA members to join the team and/or donate for those who are walking.  Here is how you can help. The fundraising window closes 10/18/21.

Texas Ramps Build

Have you ever changed a person’s life in a single day? The Texas Ramp Project does it hundreds of times a year! They build wheelchair ramps for disabled or elderly people who can’t afford to buy one. In a few hours in a morning, they give these folks the freedom to leave their home again—the home where they want to remain but whose steps have imprisoned them.

TIAA Volunteer Work Day

We are scheduling our first TIAA volunteer work day of the year.  The event will be at the Crossroads Community Services’ warehouse located at 4500 S. Cockrell Hill Road, Dallas.  A van will be provided for transportation and will be located at the Texins Fitness Center 13900 N Central Expy, Dallas, TX 75243 at 7:45 am.  Our shift is from 8:30 – 11:30 am.

Our TIAA volunteers will be helping KERA by folding and stuffing membership letters for mailing to their potential members. Please join us at the Texins Fitness Center to board a Senior Source bus at 8:30 am.  Afterwards, we will have lunch at a local restaurant (at our own expense) and arrive back to the Texins Fitness Center by approximately 1:30 pm.  Please register online for this event. We need all to register in order to have sufficient transportation for all.
