React Physical Therapy, along with our patients and community, is taking on an exciting challenge. From July 15th to September 15th, Team React is pledging to run in an effort to fight pediatric cancer Our goal is to raise $5000 as a group, and React will be matching individual donations up to $2,000!
Through this page, individuals can make outright donations or setup their own fundraising page to join our efforts.
Our fundraising efforts will be split between two very worthy causes, Wilson Gregory and Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.
Wilson was diagnosed with stage IV, high - risk neuroblastoma in May 2013. He was just under one year old. Since his diagnosis, Wilson has endured four surgeries, six rounds of chemotherapy, an autologous stem cell transplant, 32 rounds of radiation, and countless hospitalizations for fevers. He is now undergoing immunotherapy. Money raised for the Wilson family will help to offset some of the enormous costs of battling cancer. Wilson is a brave little boy and we are proud to run on his behalf.
