THE STORY:

   GiveAHand4Cancr is simple - just take a selfie or video pledging "I'm giving a hand for cancer"…or hold a pic of someone you love, and challenge your friends to match it… No ice buckets, no pies in the face, no minimum $, no embarrassing pics. Simple, easy, and if enough people give just a little, we’ll beat Cancer…for them! Can you afford $1, $5, $10, $20, or more??? 

   ALL money goes directly to the American Cancer Society..!

Why was this created? 

   As a part of a bucket list to visit all 50 states, Jay Boltz, has been collecting $1 Casino chips since 2002 - using Casinos as rest stops along the way. In 2016, while planning his summer trip through the mid-west, he discovered that he’d already “unofficially” broken the world record for "Most Casinos Visited" with 590 at that point in time. (The official Guinness record is 358 unique casinos.)  In order to submit the record, Mr. Boltz is attempting a massive 24 state road trip to gather proof - visiting the last of the largest US casinos, and re-visiting many casinos already checked off the list. The final total (1005) will nearly triple the World Record – and actually break the record in just 30 days...by visiting 415+ in one trip! 

    But why not help others at the same time? So, Jay decided to transform the trip into a Fundraiser for Cancer Research. You see, Jay's mother died in Dec 2010 from Lung cancer that spread to her brain – passing just 30 days after the diagnosis. His grandmother lost a long battle with multi-organ cancer. And one of his dearest childhood friends, fellow Ohioan Tim Bradley, lost a battle with colo-rectal cancer at the young age of 49...below the 50 years old recommended for men to even start screenings. So, the idea is simple – to challenge everyone/anyone with a family member touched by this horrid disease to "Give A Hand 4 Cancer". The FB/TW/Instagram page is “@Giveahand4cancr” ( no ‘e’ in cancer ) 

    Like a Mega-Bike-a-thon, Jay is also challenging ALL 1000+ US Casinos to donate at $1 a mile (approx. 15,000 miles), or whatever they choose to donate. Or, why not donate a portion of the proceeds for your planned July Poker tournaments..? When has the entire Casino industry supported one cause? NEVER…Why not now? 

   Jay will be traveling for 30 days – one for every day his Mother battled this horrible disease – to at least 415 Casinos, or more if time permits. You can follow his trip on "TheCasinoHopper" at Twitter, Instagram and FB.
