The mission of the Anna Schindler Foundation is to support families battling childhood cancer and raise awareness in the Inland Northwest. We fulfill our mission by aiding these families with meals cards while their child is inpatient at the hospital, offsetting grocery, gas, car repair, lodging, living and medical expenses. We have even helped with the cost of burying a child. If a family has a need we will exhaust our efforts to lighten the load so they can focus on the care of their child. It is also a dream of the Anna Schindler Foundation to build temporary housing, Anna’s Homes, for pediatric oncology families from outlying areas who must stay close to Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital for treatment.

Several athletes are competing in the IRONMAN CDA 70.3 and 140.6 to raise money for families battling childhood cancer. We are grateful to IRONMAN FOUNDATION for this opportunity to race and fund raise in our community.
