On February 15th, I will be stripping down to my skivvies and running around in the frigid temperature, all in an effort to raise funds for the Children's Tumor Foundation so kids like Jack Burke can grow up happy and healthy.
Jack is the kind of kid that immediately becomes your best friend. He has the greatest laugh, is such a character, and is a great big brother.
But Jack's journey is a tough one.
He was diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis (NF) at two-years-old and, along with other tumors, he has a plexiform neurofibroma (a complex tumor) just behind his left eye. And this September, they discovered a new tumor on his brain stem that has 8-year-old Jack starting 15 months of chemotherapy.
The Children's Tumor Foundation is the world's largest non-government organization dedicated to ending NF through research. Last year, with 8,000 runners in 18 cities worldwide, we helped raise $1.3 Million. This year, the goal is $3 Million.
Your donation, whether it be $5 or $500, will provide the Children's Tumor Foundation critical funding for clinical trials, treatments and, ultimately, the cure we so desperately need.
I sincerely thank you, Jack thanks you, and the millions of families who will benefit from this effort thank you.
100% of all (tax-deductible) donations go directly to the Children's Tumor Foundation.
The Children's Tumor Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization rated 4-stars by Charity Navigator and priding itself on spending 82.4% of its revenue on program expenses and less than 8% on administrative costs.
