Sonnen Sisters Fundraising Page

There are so many kids that need help, and we are going to ride in our stroller for the 5K while mom and dad push us in order to help raise money for kids with cancer. Mom says she is doing the 5K and hopes to raise money in gratitude for the blessing of her healthy children like my sister and I.

Dear Family and Friends,

We (Cecilia and Felicity) are signed up for an event this year and we hope you can join us.

Pinky Swear was started by a little boy from Chanhassen who before he passed away made his dad pinky promise to continue to help raise money for kids with cancer.

Some non profits help with medical bills and research or improvement to a medical hospital, but Pinky Swear is a bit different. All the money raised goes straight to the families who have kids with cancer to help pay for their normal living expenses like the monthly mortgage, car payments, grocery's, gas or some fun experience for the family to enjoy to help put smiles on their kids faces.

The race is in the hometown of the little boy who started the pinky promise - Chanhassen - at Lake Ann. There is the option to walk a 5K or 1 Mile.

Our mom and dad are doing the race, and so are Grandma and Grandpa Anderson. 

We hope you can join us on August 18th! 

Love, 

Cecilia and Felicity and new baby (who is due 2 weeks after this race)

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.
