Please join us again for the 4th annual 5k for Crosby's Fund. You can register to walk or run in the race, and we hope you'll also consider joining our fundraising team and/or making a donation. We hope to have a strong turnout again this year with many family and friends participating in Crosby's memory. Thank you so much for your continued support.
Crosby's Fund is a local charity for pediatric cancer research at The Wilmot Cancer Institute and Golisano Children’s Hospital at The University of Rochester Medical Center, located in Rochester, NY. Named for Crosby Wilmot, the Fund has been established, in close partnership with the Medical Center, to fund pediatric cancer research with a focus on neuroblastoma. This form of childhood cancer, which affects approximately 700 children a year, is particularly aggressive and unpredictable in nature. No child should ever have to face what Crosby faced during his illness. The goal of the Fund is to find more effective treatments for this disease and hopefully one day, a cure.
