BENEFITING: SEATTLE CHILDRENS HOSPITAL
EVENT: Crush Kids' Cancer
EVENT DATE: Jul 12, 2014
You may be aware that in addition to working with groups of volunteers fundraising for Seattle Children's Hospital, I also volunteer in a guild of my own - CRUSH KID’S CANCER. We raise funds for Pediatric Cancer Research; specifically to pay for clinical trials. Many of the costs associated with clinical trials are not covered by insurance and each trial costs approximately $50,000. The research we support is working - THREE kids have gone through this treatment and are cancer free!
Here’s how the fundraising works:
- Riders get people to sponsor them as they ride STP (a two-day bike ride from Seattle to Portland). Every dollar they raise goes to research, nothing goes toward expenses.
- What I do – I’m part of the “Pit Crew” working the rest stops, setting up tents, serving food, whatever needs to be done on race day.
- Where you come in – We need to raise $4,000 to feed the 125 riders over the course of the two day ride.
Will you consider a $10 donation to help cover the cost of a meal for a rider to ensure that all their fundraising goes directly towards clinical trials? Just $10.
Thanks so much for considering,
Ps – if you’d prefer to send a check made out to Crush Kid’s Cancer, let me know.
