What's ThinkCure?

ThinkCure, the official charity of the Los Angeles Dodgers, advances cures for cancer by funding innovative cancer research in the Los Angeles area.

ThinkCure raises money for grants that fund exciting projects by some of the nation's top researchers -- at City of Hope and CHLA -- who are teaming up to make important discoveries. They target some of the toughest diseases. Brain cancer. Leukemia. Lymphoma. Neuroblastoma. And they're doing it together.

FAQs

What if I've already signed up for the 5K or marathon?

 

You can still sign up for the City of Hope/ThinkCure team. Just create a Crowdrise page under the same name you registered with for the race.

No one's getting my e-mails I sent by using the SHARE button. What gives?

If you're an employee and you signed up using a City of Hope e-mail address, the organization's e-mail system won't allow you to send blanket e-mails from an @coh.org account using the online tools available through the SHARE button.

But there's an easy way to e-mail friends! Use your regular e-mail to send a message to your friends asking you to contribute to the team using your own unique link. It should be www.crowdrise.com/HopeThinkCure/fundraiser/YOURNAMEHERE. You can find your own personal link by clicking on "My Account" in the gray box at the top of the screen.

Also, make sure to set your junk e-mail filters so that you can receive e-mails from quintas@crowdrise.com.


What if my friends want to donate by check instead of online?

Crowdrise has tools for you to use to track these donations. Go to your Team Member's Toolkit on your own page and enter the name of the donor and the amount they gave. Checks should be written out to ThinkCure and mailed to 9420 Wilshire Blvd, Suite 300, Beverly Hills, CA 90212.
 

Are donations tax-deductible?

Yes.
 

I'm still confused about the site. Who can I talk to?
