Team Imagine, an online fundraising initiative for Imagine, A Center for Coping with Loss, raised over $6,000 from its participation in the Downtown Westfield 5K Run and Pizza Extravaganza on July 27.
Over 40 adults and children came out in the heat to run and walk in support of Team Imagine. Team Imagine participants, volunteers and supporters attended the “More than Pizza After Party” generously hosted by Keller Williams Realty of Westfield. Team Imagine 2016 sponsors include: Bradley and Son Funeral Homes; Twin Boro Physical Therapy; Amy Yin Interiors; Ernst & Young; Keller Williams Realty; Lindabury, McCormick, Estabrook & Cooper, P.C.; McGinley Building Services; and Jeffrey Sobel Consulting.
Team Imagine was graciously and generously founded in 2015 by Bradley & Son Funeral Homes who has made a five-year commitment to ensure their success. Adults and kids come together to raise funds for Imagine at events such as walks, 5ks, swims, concerts, book-a-thons, milestone birthdays, etc. The possibilities for Team Imagine are endless. You pick the race or design your own and Imagine provides the resources for you to raise funds for Imagine.
