For his 50th Birthday, Brad decided to plan a challenge for the community, the Children's Cancer Center, and himself. Brad has challenged himself to run 10 miles a day for 50 consecutive days. That is 500 MILES!
He is requesting that every Run be sponsored by 50 people (or entities) from the community giving $50 or multiples thereof.
$2,500 per workout x 50 workouts = $125,000 for the Children's Cancer Center!"
It's the 50x50x50x50 Challenge! 50 workouts sponsored by 50 entities giving $50 dollars per day for 50 days!
Children’s Cancer Center’s Mission:
The Children’s Cancer Center is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving families of children who are battling cancer or chronic blood disorders with emotional, financial, and educational support necessary to cope with their life-threatening illness.
The Children’s Cancer Center was founded in 1974. Mac and Cecile Burnett, who lost their daughter, Helen to leukemia, and Dr. Janifer M. Judisch, envisioned an organization that would help alleviate the stress of coping with a child’s life-threatening disease. The philosophy of our original founders is that kids need more than medicine to be well and that when a child is diagnosed, the entire family is essentially diagnosed. Therefore, our programs and services address the immediate everyday needs for the child, along with the needs of all family members affected. With more than 24 programs and services currently helping 1,000+ families, and 45 years of existence and stewardship, it is evident that the Children’s Cancer Center is a crucial organization to so many families.
