THE STORY:

Almost 2 years ago, my brother Andy lost his brave battle to brain cancer. As a way to honor his life and legacy and help others in need, we created the Race for Ace event. I’m proud to help raise money for The Making Headway Foundation, a charity dedicated to providing care, comfort, and a cure for children with brain and spinal cord tumors, for a second year in a row… and I hope you will join me in supporting this important cause.


Andy had a rare brain tumor that was mostly found in children, so despite being in his mid to late 20s, he often found himself on the same floor, and sometimes even in the same room, as children going through a similar struggle. He would play games and laugh with the children - always remaining strong in front of them and inspiring them to stay strong in their fight as well.


The Making Headway Foundation does so much to help these children, and I know Andy would be very proud that we had chosen to support this organization and this cause. Please help us in raising money for this courageous organization so that they can continue to provide important care services to those in need, as well as advance our ability to treat this complex disease through the innovative research they support.
