My Message

Hello!

This year I will be fundraising for the Pinky Swear Foundation 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. 

I learned 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.  

I am participating in the Drake Relays 5K on April 28, 2017.   I am 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. They also provide All Star Weekends to help boost family morale.  My goal is to raise $500.  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 am running to show my support my friend and cancer fighter Jackson Fisher (St. Augustin class of 2015)
