Genre's Kids with Cancer Fund via Crowdrise
August 24, 2012

Thank you for visiting! Help us raise money for kids with cancer. JOIN OUR TEAM by running the marathon, half, relay, 5K or Kids marathon!  See more

THE STORY:

Genre (like Henry with a “G”) was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia on Memorial Day, 2009.  He was 8 yrs. old.  Since that day, so much generosity and love has been shown to this family not only by friends and relatives but by complete strangers as well.  It is the hope of the Baker family to give back by assisting families battling childhood cancer.

Join Team Genre's Kids and help us raise more money than ever before. We are grateful to be an Official Charity of the 2013 Dick's Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon!

Click the big DONATE button or go one step further and JOIN OUR TEAM by clicking the CHARITY REGISTRATION button. You’ll get your own fundraising page to share with all your amazing family and friends. Commit to raising money, and we pay your entry fee for one of the marathon weekend race events.

Fundraising Goals:
$50 for Kids Marathon participants

How will your money help?

$15  will pay for an iTunes gift card, so kids can download an app or song, to entertain them when they are in the hospital for days.

$20 will purchase a video game, providing hours of distraction for a kid in the hospital receiving chemotherapy or lengthy treatments.

$50 will buy a gas gift card, for oncology families who travel long distances, so their child can get medical care at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh.

$50 will pay for all of the items to complete a "Go Bag" we give to every oncology family when their child is admitted, and they hear the words "your child has cancer".

$129 will pay for a handheld gaming system or music player, we give to every child newly diagnosed with cancer at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh, if they don't already own one. These are priceless to the children during long treatments or when they are hospitalized for weeks at a time.

Any amount will support our financial assistance program. We pay utility bills, mortgage payments, lodging, and other expenses so that families can stay by their child's side. . We are raising money to help pediatric oncology families in need.

"What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make."  ~ Jane Goodall

Together we will help families living through childhood cancer.
