Team Captain Spotlight: Lindsey Hobbs
Get to know Lindsey Hobbs, Team Captain of Anne’s Avengers!
What’s your “why?”
I can honestly say that breast cancer has been part of my entire life. My mother was diagnosed when I was 2 years old and lost her fight when I was 14. I’m involved with Komen in her memory and hopefully, in my own small way, to make a difference in the life of another family.
How are you “more than pink?”
I don’t know that I would describe myself as “more than pink.” However, I know how much my family relied on our friends, family, and community, and feel that if I have the opportunity to give back and make a difference that I should do that.
What are good ways to recruit team members and fundraise?
The most effective way to get others involved is to share your story. People that love you will want to help.
How much time out of your schedule does it take to be a team captain?
If you plan, set a goal (and try to find one with a meaning), it doesn’t take much time to be a team captain. It takes some time each week to reach out to team members and try to organize and motivate.
What’s your favorite Komen event memory?
This will be my fourth year on the Race for the Cure Committee. Every year, in addition to a tremendous amount of work, it’s been a tremendous amount of fun. I’ve met some incredible people who I enjoy working with to make this event happen, and would pick up pieces of confetti with any time!
