"Ta-Ta's for Teri," is their name, and $5,300 is how much they raised for Siouxland's Susan G. Komen, Race for the Cure. Next year, they hope to double that.
Eric McLagan, the son of the woman the team is in honor of, says, "It was great knowing that we were the top team, but we did it for the right reasons and that was special for us."
Those reasons center around Teri McLagan, a mother, wife and friend who may have lost her battle with breast cancer, but is still more present than ever in her family's hearts and through their fundraising efforts toward the cause. Like a garage sale that showcased a lot of Teri's old items.
Steve McLagan, Teri's Husband, says, "She had a leather coat that we got out and got to sell. The kids reached in the pocket and found a toothpick and some gum – she always carried a toothpick and gum in her pockets, so you know, kind of brings back some memories."
Eric adds, "It's never easy going through some stuff but this is what she would have wanted. If she couldn't have it, somebody else that needs it could take it."
A powerful example of paying it forward and unbridled commitment to a cure.
All in all, the McLagans raised $250 through the garage sale, but their efforts don't stop there.
On Saturday, September 24th, the McLagan's are hosting a "Ta-Ta's for Teri Burger Bash," at Pac 'N Save in Wayne, NE. It'll be going on from 11:00am-2:00pm. There, you can purchase a burger, chips and pop for $3, with all proceeds going to the Race for the Cure.
The McLagans are also selling raffle tickets for a 2012 Major League Baseball All-Star Game Package. This is a 3 day - 2 night package for July 9th-11th, 2012 in Kansas City. It includes: round-trip motor coach transportation from Yankton to KC for two people, 2 nights in a motel (double occupancy), 2 lower level seats for the Home Run Derby and 2 lower level seats for the All-Star game. Tickets are being sold for $5 each, or $20 for 5. Again, all proceeds are going to the Race for the Cure. To purchase your raffle tickets, e-mail Eric at: firstname.lastname@example.org
