Hi. The proverbial “Elephant in the room” is the fact that finding a cure for cancer is within your reach to be part of the solution.
Rivals United for a Kure is a charity that directly supports medical research at USC and UCLA for under-funded cancers. We would greatly appreciate your donation.
Please read the following and you’ll understand a little more about why we're asking for your help.
In the last two years, we have raised close to $650,000. Virtually every dollar went directly to UCLA’s Jonsson and USC’s Norris Comprehensive Cancer Centers for their research of kidney cancer and other under-funded cancers. Our goal this year is to raise $1,000,000.
It’s been just over16 years since Barry Hoeven’s was diagnosed with kidney cancer. Despite multiple operations, almost complete removal of his kidneys and part of his lungs and numerous debilitating drugs, Barry still goes to work each day with a pretty big smile on his face.
He’s smiling because since 2007, Kure-it has raised over $2,700,000! This money has gone a long way to ensure that the needed research is being conducted to wipe kidney and other orphan cancers off the face of the earth!
As a loyal USC graduate and super-sharp businessman, he knows that a little competition goes a long way, especially when it involves the rivalry between USC and UCLA. With collaboration and teamwork, miracles happen. For that reason he established a subsidiary of Kure it by the name of Rivals United for a Kure. This organization brings an entire sports community of people together to raise money for kidney cancer and under-funded, orphan cancers. Whether you’re a UCLA or USC fan, the advances in research that your generosity has been able to support impact students and alumni as well as the world.
Many thanks again for your support. Please join me once again in helping to find a Kure. Please also visit Rivals United For a Kure.org to keep up to date about this fantastic program. And, if you really want to have some fun, please plan to attend our Gala Event on November 16 at the City Club in Los Angeles.
