A much belated thank you to everyone for making the PhotoFinish 5K a huge success again this year! Thank you to the participants, the donors and the fundraisers - and some of you did all 3! It was a special day being surrounded by friends and family while we walked or ran in memory of Crosby.

You all have helped us endure the last two years and without your support and love we never could have done it. You have also allowed us to carry on Crosby's fight against neuroblastoma by donating.

To date we have raised just over half a million dollars! It's simply amazing. Crosby would be so proud. We have to keep it up, so other children don't have to suffer like he did. We have to dream big!

Thank you so much.

Love,
Zoe, Kevin, Kassidy, Lola and Davis

Thank you so much for donating to our fundraiser. It continues to amaze me that so many people (some that know our family and others that don't) continue to support Crosby's Fund. I can't tell you how much it means to me that you care about Crosby and our hope to carry on his fight. We miss him so much.

Your donation will allow us to continue to fund research of this awful disease. If you want to see exactly where your donation is going - please see our new web site http://www.crosbysfund.org. I promise that ALL of your donation is going to support research - nowhere else.

Thank you again for your generosity.

With much gratitude,
Zoe & Kevin

You guys are doing an amazing job raising money - keep it up! I just increased our goal to $50,000. I know we can do it!! Welcome to the people that have recently joined our team. Thank you so much for becoming a part of this and helping us raise money for neuroblastoma research. I cannot thank all of you enough.

Don't forget to encourage people to sign up for the race too! We'd love to have lots of people again this year. Register at: http://photofinish5k.eastmanhouse.org/event-info/register/ The sooner the better, because we are trying to square away numbers for t-shirts.

Thanks again for all of your support.

Lots of Love,
Zoe

Hi Team. Things are picking up! We have almost reached our new $20,000 goal! I hope we can bump it up again as the event gets closer.

Thank you so much to the people that have recently joined our team. Your support of our family and Crosby's Fund means so much to us.

I continue to be amazed by the generosity of family, friends, friends of friends and complete strangers. It's hard to explain how much it means when people care enough to participate and/or donate - regardless of the amount. All of these gestures remind me that you all care about Crosby and remember his amazing spirit.

He was the toughest kid I've ever met. I just looked at a picture of him in his Superman t-shirt earlier today and he was all that and more. He used to run the halls of the 4th floor with his IV pole, so fast I couldn't keep up with him. One of his favorite things to do was to trap the fellows or residents in his lines by running circles around them. He thought this was very funny - most of the time they had no idea what to think! He also liked to race circles around the nurses station and grab as much food (Spaghettios were his favorite to steal although he didn't even like to eat them!) from behind the desk. He was always making his presence known on the floor with either his bright smile or his pointing and screaming (he didn't speak much) to tell me where to take him.

Anyhow, thanks again and keep up the good work. I know it's harder to raise money this year, but don't worry, whatever we raise is great! Don't forget if you get offline donations to post them on your page and Iet me know so I can keep Wilmot Cancer Center in the loop. Then you can either send the checks to me or directly to the Cancer Center.

Lots of love,
Zoe

Hey guys. I just wanted to thank all of you that have recently "joined my team". I am so grateful for your support. I hope we can all continue to raise money as the event gets closer and possibly catch up to Greg!:) Don't forget to encourage your friends and family to sign up to participate in the 5K too. Lots of love to you all!

I just wanted to reach out and thank all of you that have so generously donated to our fundraiser. Some of you know our family, but others don't and it amazes me that you've all been so selfless to help us out. I can't tell you how much it touches me that you all care about Crosby and our hope to carry on his fight. We miss him so much.

Thank you again for helping us fund research of this awful disease. If you want to see exactly where your donation is going - please look at our new web site www.crosbysfund.org. I promise it's ALL going to the research - nowhere else.

Hi everyone,

The big day is quickly approaching and this team is doing an AMAZING job raising money for Crosby's Fund!

Just a few things -

*There will be a post-race gathering tent in the garden at the GEH for the Crosby's Fund team. Zoe & Kevin are hoping for a chance to see their friends & family that are participating.

*We have team t-shirts for everyone running or walking for Crosby's Fund. Please let me know your shirt size ASAP so we can place the order. My email is carolyn.linehan@me.com and my cell is 455-8955, and I'm also on Facebook.

*Just to clarify, none of the $20 registration fee goes to Crosby's Fund, it only goes to the Geo Eastman House. We raise money separately for Crosby's Fund through this website or by collecting checks.

* The following people still need to register for the race at:

Thanks to everyone for your hard work and dedication to Crosby! Together we will make a difference!

Happy Monday, Team! :)

We're just about a month away from the big day and we're already at 68% of our goal of raising $50,000 for Crosby's Fund!

Here's a challenge to all the members on the project team that haven't started fundraising yet: HELP US REACH $40,000 today. Yep, today! If those of you who are currently at $0 were able to raise only $143 each, we'd reach today's goal.

I hope you take the challenge, and push us up to $40,000 by the end of the day today.

Thanks to everyone for your support and enthusiasm. This is the best team ever!

Carolyn

Good morning, team! If you haven't already, will you please replace your orange swirly with a photo for your profile?
Let's keep up the great work and raise some serious money for Crosby's Fund! Every donation makes a difference, whether it's $10 or $20, or $100. We've got almost 60 team members now. If everyone raised even $100 total, it would be a significant chunk of money.
Thanks for your support,
Carolyn
