Our Team Fundraising Page

Hello!  We started a team of kids who will be participating in the Hy-Vee Pinky Swear Kids Triathlon, and are raising money for kids with cancer; especially our friend Haakyn Mohr.  He is incredibly talented and doesn't deserve to have cancer.  He has kidney cancer and has been doing chemo for the past 6 months.  He is a fighter and is brave and is not letting cancer stop him!  He is like Mitch in this story...

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 places to stay, transportation, and food and weekend getaways so they can focus on their child getting better.

Our goal is to further the mission to support kids with cancer and their families, just like Haakyn.  Can you help us raise money to help these families?  THANK YOU for being so generous!!  Here is a link to Haak's Caring Bridge site so you can read more about his journey.
