Brookhaven Runners Team Up to Fight Leukemia, Lymphoma

The Windsor Warriors are teaming up with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to fight blood cancers.

The Windsor Warriors are a group of Brookhaven residents sponsored by Windsor Property Management. Their mission is to promote participation in charitable fundraisers and community events which strengthens and inspires a community.

The Windsor Warriors have teamed up with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team In Training (TNT) to prepare six Atlanta Windsor Community residents for the upcoming Publix Georgia Half Marathon on Sunday, March 17.

The six members include Tamara Beard, Julia Wolfe, Meghan McDonnell, Michelle Williams, Reagan Wolfe and Sarah Eales.

With professional coaches to guide their every step, the participants went through a four month training program while helping the organization raise much needed funds towards the fight against blood cancer.

The first Windsor Warrior team originated in Houston, Texas in 2011. In March of 2012, one of the team members, Tamara Beard, transferred from Houston to Atlanta, and began her mission to create the Atlanta Windsor Warriors Team.

Tamara met a resident at Windsor at Brookhaven who was associated with TNT and was inspired to contact the program to join forces in making a difference.

Most recently, the Windsor Warriors organized an event that raised $2,000.00 for Team In Training and is well on the way to raising over $10,000 by mid 2013.

The Windsor Warrior team also consists of Windsor associates, including Catherine Boyd, Felicia Cox, Bri Haygood, Meli Robichaud, Brooke Schumacher, Christopher Telo and Anna Zboinska, who have organized the fundraising events.
