We are sad to not see all of incredible Brave for Benjamin supporters at an in-person lemonade stand this year. We know that the needs of pediatric cancer families during this global pandemic have increased exponentially. We are grateful for the heartfelt commitment the foundation continues to make in order to serve families who are in their darkest moments. We appreciate any help you can offer to help us reach our goal!
As an organization who works closely with families battling cancer, we have seen first hand the impact COVID-10 has had on them. Our grant applications have increased 200%, families have been broken up due to having parents who are essential workers, parents have been laid off and have lost their health insurance and the increase cost of PPE has taken a large toll.
We have always viewed our Foundation as a family. Each and every one of the families we help are a part of our that family and each supporter is a part of our family too!
In the interest of keeping everyone safe, The Anthony Rizzo Family Foundation's 9th Annual 5k Walk-Off for Cancer will go VIRTUAL!
The official date is November 15, but you can do it whenever it is most convenient. It's up to you!
ANYONE WHO REGISTERS BEFORE 11/1 WILL HAVE THEIR T-SHIRT AND MASK SENT TO THEM BEFORE THE EVENT.
As part of the Walk we have FUNDRAISING INCENTIVES which will be given for reaching various fundraising levels. The Team that raises the most funds will be recognized by Anthony on the morning of the race via video.
With your help, no family will ever have to choose between paying a bill and saving their child's life.
