My Message

Hello!

This year I am fundraising for the Pinky Swear Foundation, to help further their mission to help kids with cancer and their families with financial and emotional support.

In December 2002, nine-year-old Mitch Chepokas, terminally ill with bone cancer, withdrew the entire $6,000 from his savings account and put it in envelopes for the kids on the pediatric oncology floor at the hospital. After giving all of his money away, Mitch made a pinky swear promise with his dad to always help children with cancer and their families after he was gone. Mitch passed away on April 11, 2003, and shortly afterwards, the Pinky Swear Foundation was established by Mitch's parents to honor the Pinky Swear Mitch made with his dad. 

Did you know that one out of 11 families who have a child diagnosed with cancer will be forced to file for bankruptcy? Together we can make a life-changing difference for families like Mitch did.  

Michael Scholz (8th grade) and I are participating in the Drake Relays 5K and raising money to support PInky Swear's mission to help those kids with cancer and their families. Pinky Swear helps families by paying for mortgages, rent, food, gas, and transportation costs. Our goal is to raise $1,000.

My ultimate goal is to keep the Pinky Swear by helping children with cancer and their families that are going through a tough time.   I personally know several families helped by Pinky Swear and am inspired by their mission.  We would be honored if you would consider supporting us as we run to keep the Pinky Swear promise.   Are you in?
