Welcome to the Team Teacher Anna page! My name is David Tilles. I am excited to be participating in the 11th Annual Heroes of Hope Race in honor of my wife Anna DeAlto Tilles. Anna lost her battle with brain cancer this past February. She participated in the 2017 Heroes of Hope Race just 3 weeks before a new tumor was discovered that ended her life. She battled her tumor with grace and calm, and a fierce determination, modeling the behavior she no doubt hoped those around her would emulate after she left us. I know her memory lives on in the lives of many in Southern California and beyond. As a teacher for over 30 years at Allesandro Elementary in Los Angeles, her warmth and goodness cast a wide net over hundreds of students, teachers and staff, as well as friends and family.
Money raised from this event will fund Childhood and Adult brain tumor and cancer research here in Southern California!
Please consider helping by sponsoring “Team Teacher Anna”. Even better, please consider being a part of the team on our walk by the ocean to honor Anna's memory on November 11, 2018. Thank you.
