In September of 2014, our inspiration Izzy "Warrior Princess" Rita was diagnosed with a spinal cord tumor. Since then, Izzy has shown us what it means to live every day to the fullest, to be courageous in the face of adversity, and to turn tragedy to triumph. Our mission at Izzy's Infantry inspired by Izzy's grace in her fight is to provide strength and hope for children undergoing cancer treatment and their families by:
- Funding research that will lead to better treatment options and a cure for childhood cancer;
- Funding rehabilitations programs for children recovering from spinal cord injury;
- Improving the quality of life for children in treatment and their families through outreach programs and support.
Team Izzy's Infantry is running to Get Healthy for Hope for our warriors and to show them we are battling along with them.
