Whether you register to run the race, become a Sponsor, or volunteer, all our fundraising gets split up evenly to be donated to these two powerful organizations and families in the community who need financial support from cancer treatment.
Each year, we choose ONE TO TWO families who are in need of financial HELP FROM CANCER TREATMENTS. This year we have chosen Michael Esquivel and his family and Berkley Samdal and her family.
Michael Esquivel is a fun loving 5 year old fighting stage 4 Neuroblastoma cancer for the second time. He was first diagnosed as a baby, and after 3.5 years being cancer free, it returned in Dec. of 2018. He completed chemo, radiation and surgery. Next is 6 months of painful immunotherapy treatments in NYC, followed by 2 years of clinical trials to help prevent future relapse. He will start kindergarten in the fall, but will fly back and forth for treatment. Michael just wants to play with friends and be a normal kid, and he is our superhero!
Berkley Samdal was diagnosed with leukemia at only 12 years of age, and with that comes an immense amount of stress, emotions, resources, and financial burdens. We want to #FIGHTLIKEBERKS and help her through this process. She has organized a blood drive on Sept. 21st and donated her hair to support others who are dealing with what she has suddenly had to deal with.
Kelly Cares Foundation
The Kelly Cares Foundation strengthens communities and inspires hope by investing resources to improve Health & Education around cancer. They have been able to provide hope to the people served by the organizations, initiatives and programs that share our core values of health, education and community.
The mission of The ChadTough Foundation is to inspire and fund game-changing research to discover effective treatments for pediatric brain cancer, with an emphasis on Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG).
The most hated word in the world of pediatric brain tumors is “rare.” “Rare” is the reason there is not enough research being done. “Rare” is the reason there is so little funding. “Rare” is why our kids don’t have more options.
Our vision is for DIPG to no longer be a death sentence.
