Relax • Create • Help
Be a part of the first annual Tangle-A-Thon fundraiser to benefit TeamWalk for CancerCare at Lowell General Hospital.  100% of funds raised will help to provide support services for CancerCare patients and their families.  If you have benefitted from the Zentangle® Method, here's your chance to give back by helping others in a fun and creative way!


What is Tangle-A-Thon?



Tangle-A-Thon is an inspiring day filled with creativity, learning, and creating hope for CancerCare patients through our fundraising efforts.

Discover your inner artist with the meditative Zentangle® Method of creating artwork through structured patterns. If you can write your name, you can create beautiful art with the Zentangle® Method.  Learn how to relax and unwind while creating beautiful art.

Register, gather pledges, and come for a day filled with tangling fun, lessons, prizes, and meeting fellow lovers of Zentangle®. Beginners to regular tanglers are all welcome!

What is TeamWalk?
TeamWalk funds make a difference in the lives of today's cancer patients by paying for medications, nutritional supplements, wigs and prostheses, support groups, skilled nursing visits, transportation, mini-grants, and supportive services to patients of all cancer types.  Funds raised enable Lowell General Hospital to provide assistance, support, and services to help people feel better, build confidence and instill hope throughout their battle with cancer. -- From TeamWalk's web site.

Tangle-A-Thon Origins

Tangle-A-Thon is developed by Emily Classon, Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT) with support from several area CZTs.  Emily has received many personal and health benefits from her regular Zentangle practice, that she wanted to find a special way to give back to others beyond teaching the practice of Zentangle.  As a "pay-it-forward" idea, with Tangle-A-Thon, Emily hopes to inspire others to develop a love of the Zentangle Method, unite tanglers in a positive and fun event, and encourage people to raise money to help families affected by cancer.  Emily selected TeamWalk for CancerCare as the beneficiary for this fundraiser because it is a wonderful program that has helped several of her friends and colleagues over the years.  Emily and her family have been frequent participants in the TeamWalk event, and Emily's daughter and many of her friends were born at Lowell General Hospital.
