Join Team Genre's Kids at the 2013 Pittsburgh Marathon and help us raise more money than ever before.
Click the big DONATE button or go one step further and help us fundraise by clicking the JOIN THE TEAM 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.
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.
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. Many expenses of pediatric cancer are not medical. 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.
If you have already registered for a race event online, you can still JOIN OUR TEAM. We need your help!
