My Personal Fundraising Page

Hello! This year I am participating in the Hy-Vee Pinky Swear Kids Triathlon, and I am raising money for kids with cancer.

The Pinky Swear Story

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 afterward, the Pinky Swear Foundation was established by Mitch's parents to honor the promise he 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 kids with cancer and their families like Mitch did.

Your tax-deductible donation provides families facing cancer with financial and emotional support, including grants for stable housing, reliable transportation, utilities, food and weekend getaways so they can focus on what’s most important: their child battling cancer.

My goal is to further the mission to support kids with cancer and their families. Are you in?
