The Pinky Swear Story
In December of 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 kids on the pediatric oncology floor at the hospital.
After giving all of his money away, Mitch’s dad made a pinky swear promise with him to always help children with cancer and their families after he was gone.
Mitch passed away on April 11, 2003, and shortly afterwards, Pinky Swear Foundation was established by his parents to honor the promise he made.
The 2018 Kids Triathlon was a huge success! Here are some of the highlights from the event and the event numbers!
Number of Participants – 281
Number of Volunteers – 138
Peer to Peer Donation Total - $19,432.06

Help us reach our goal of raising $25,000 to support kids with cancer and their families with financial and emotional support!
Thanks to the generosity of The Harper Family Foundation, if Pinky Swear Foundation raises a total of $300,000 in peer fundraising in 2018, they will match it with an additional donation of $300,000. That means our goal of $25,000 could actually be doubled to $50,000! That means we can help double the amount of kids and their famlies, too!
