Valley Girls & Guys! was originally formed in 2007 by Tina McDonough as a 3 Day walking team to raise money and to support the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk for a Cure. Since then, the group has expanded beyond just fundraising for the 3-day walk for a cure. In October of 2014 paperwork was filed so that Valley Girls & Guys could become a 501(c)(3) non-profit. In March of 2015 Valley Girls & Guys! was approved for non-profit status.
Valley Girls & Guys! is still a 3 day team that supports Susan G. Komen for the cure, but has also expanded our efforts to sending blankets of “comfort and hope” all over the world, opening The Who House by harnessing the power of community to support cancer patients and their families and by providing Who Dream to those terminal with any type of cancer.
We’ve recently teamed up with Mountain for Mammaries as well to help fund mammograms here locally in our state to those who can’t afford them or have no insurance to do so can receive one.
Valley Girls and Guys are active year round raising money to not only fight cancer, but to help patients and their families during treatment.
