Why did you decide to shine the spotlight on this Fangirl?
Tanya is incredibly kind hearted and generous. This nerd on a mission uses her cosplay and nerdy endeavors to help others as often as she can. When she sells cosplay prints all of the proceeds go to charity. For two years in a row, she has also run the Avengers Half-Marathon for St. Jude Children’s Hospital and Research Center (raising almost $4,000 over both races and still going!). Her fundraising slogan is “SHIELD SOCK CANCER!” When asked why she runs for St. Jude, Tanya says “What better way to run a super hero themed race than to be a hero to those children? No cape required, just a lot of love and dedication!” Her race fundraising page is located at http://heroes.stjude.org/tanyawheelock if you’d like to join the fight.
