John, Charlie, Jake, and I would like to thank you very much for your generous donation to Sammy’s Fund. With the money raised, Sammy’s Fund will continue to support the phenomenal agencies and programs that help to educate, protect and serve the needs of children in our community. In the past two years we have been able to donate to the Bivona Child Advocacy Center, Mercier Literacy for Children, Green Angels, Dreams for Drake, Mercy Flight, Lifetime Care, Charles Settlement House, Food Link, Melissa’s Living Legacy, Algonquin Campership Fund, the Rochester Museum and Science Center and more!

Because we are one of the top fundraisers again this year we will have a tent set up near the finish line. So if you are coming to the Photo Finish 5k, please join us for some food and drinks.

We appreciate all the many ways you support us and help us to keep Sammy’s memory and fun loving spirit alive.

Thank you again for your love and support,

Kerry, Jake, John and Charlie

Thank you so much for your generous donation to Crosby's Fund. It means so much to me and my family to have your support. We have been working tirelessly this year to raise more money and spend it to help families and children facing pediatric cancer.

Pediatric cancer research funding is being effected by further budget cuts, making Crosby’s Fund all the more important. We promise that 100% of your donation will go straight to pediatric cancer research focusing on neuroblastoma.

The research funded by Crosby’s Fund at the UofR has made great strides this year. Here's a brief update:
· Dr. Li is planning to submit a proposal to the NIH (National Institutes of Health) for funding in the near future.

· His work has been so impressive that in partnership with the UofR, we've agreed to extend his contract for another 3 years.

· In conjunction with Dr. Li’s contract extension, The University has agreed to hire a fellow to assist Dr. Li in his research.

· We are not only extending the program, we are also expanding the program.

Thank you again for believing in our cause and allowing us to carry on Crosby's fight. We couldn't do it without you.

Much Love,
Zoe

Thank you so much for your generous donation to Crosby’s Fund. We know that there are countless worthy causes asking for your support every day, so we are incredibly grateful that you choose Crosby’s Fund.

Private fundraising is critical for pediatric cancer research, because only 3% of federal cancer funding is allocated to childhood cancers. Too many children are dying every day, because of the lack of new treatments and therapies.

It’s amazing that in just 2 years we have been able to help hire a full time neuroblastoma researcher at Golisano Children’s Hospital for a 3 year term and fund a seed grant to a nationally renowned researcher at Wilmot Cancer Center. We are currently in the process of identifying our next research project to fund.

We cannot thank you enough for helping us carry on Crosby’s fight. He was incredibly brave, loving and funny. We want to help other families watch their children grow up instead of plan funerals and write obituaries. It’s got to stop!

We feel blessed to have the support of so many friends and family. Thank you for caring about Crosby, our family and all children facing cancer. Thank you to those of you that came out this morning for the 5K! It was an incredible day! More details and pictures to come on Facebook and the website soon.

Lots of Love,
Zoe, Kevin, Kassidy, Lola & Davis

A much belated thank you to everyone for making the PhotoFinish 5K a huge success again this year! Thank you to the participants, the donors and the fundraisers - and some of you did all 3! It was a special day being surrounded by friends and family while we walked or ran in memory of Crosby.

You all have helped us endure the last two years and without your support and love we never could have done it. You have also allowed us to carry on Crosby's fight against neuroblastoma by donating.

To date we have raised just over half a million dollars! It's simply amazing. Crosby would be so proud. We have to keep it up, so other children don't have to suffer like he did. We have to dream big!

Thank you so much.

Love,
Zoe, Kevin, Kassidy, Lola and Davis

Thank you so much for making a donation to Crosby's Fund. It means so much to Ed and I to have your support, and it means the world to Kevin and Zoe to continue on Crosby's legacy. He truly has touched so many lives in his short time here with us.

Tomorrow morning's forecast: 45 degrees and 100% chance of rain. As Kevin said, "it's perfect weather - if you're a duck!"

Again, thank you so much for your support!
GO CROSBY GO!
Much love,
Ed & Amy

Thank you so much for donating to our fundraiser. It continues to amaze me that so many people (some that know our family and others that don't) continue to support Crosby's Fund. I can't tell you how much it means to me that you care about Crosby and our hope to carry on his fight. We miss him so much.

Your donation will allow us to continue to fund research of this awful disease. If you want to see exactly where your donation is going - please see our new web site http://www.crosbysfund.org. I promise that ALL of your donation is going to support research - nowhere else.

Thank you again for your generosity.

With much gratitude,
Zoe & Kevin

You guys are doing an amazing job raising money - keep it up! I just increased our goal to $50,000. I know we can do it!! Welcome to the people that have recently joined our team. Thank you so much for becoming a part of this and helping us raise money for neuroblastoma research. I cannot thank all of you enough.

Don't forget to encourage people to sign up for the race too! We'd love to have lots of people again this year. Register at: http://photofinish5k.eastmanhouse.org/event-info/register/ The sooner the better, because we are trying to square away numbers for t-shirts.

Thanks again for all of your support.

Lots of Love,
