Thank you for visiting my Personal Fundraising Page benefiting the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. I became interested in this cause after getting to know some of the kids and their families that are affected by brain tumors while attending a "Ride for Kids" event in South Bend several years ago. I learned that we can all make a difference in these kids lives by donating to the PBTF. The foundation funds the research necessary to find the cause of and cure for pediatric brain tumors. They also offer support and information to families with kids fighting this disease.
I became part of the team that puts together the Northern Indiana Ride for Kids that will take place this year on Sunday morning, July 8th at Pinhook Park in South Bend. You can support the kids by coming to this years event or you can donate through this site to show your support for this truly worthwhile cause. Together we can and we will someday find a cure for this terrible killer of our precious children.
Here are some facts you need to know:
Brain tumors are the leading cause of cancer death in children.
76% of the children diagnosed with a brain tumor are under the age of 15.
Everyday, 10 more kids a diagnosed with a brain tumor.
4 out of 10 children will die within 5 years of diagnosis.
84% of the money raised for the PBTF goes to the kids, programs, & research.
Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to make a contribution to our fundraising efforts. Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
