Sybil Wilkes, on-air personality of the nationally syndicated Tom Joyner Morning Show, is recruiting people to join her team as part of the 50 Million Pound Challenge sponsored by State Farm®, and help keep kids in college.
For each person who joins Team Sybil, $1 will be donated to the Tom Joyner Foundation, which provides scholarships to keep students enrolled at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).
Team Sybil has set a goal to recruit 30,000 members as part of the national campaign designed to promote healthier lifestyles.
“Our Team is working hard and making great progress toward living healthier lives!” Wilkes said. “We are helping ourselves…and we want to help others as well by supporting the Tom Joyner Foundation in its quest to help deserving students graduate from Historically Black Colleges and Universities.”
Wilkes said she knows these are tough economic times, but she stresses the importance of making sure we take care of ourselves by eating the right foods and exercising. That’s why she is encouraging everyone to go to BlackAmericaWeb.com (http://blackamericaweb.com) to sign up for her team.
“This is all about doing the right thing, and giving back,” Wilkes said. “That’s a great combination if you ask me.”
