Welcome to My Page!
Family and Friends,
I wanted to share with you why I am involved in BuckeyeThon and why I am For The Kids. When I first signed up to be a team captain for my Residence Hall, I had no idea that an organization could impact me so much. When I went to my first meeting they told us that we were going to start with Inspiration. At the time, I didn’t even know what that meant. A family then walked into the room and introduced themselves to us. Avalon told us about her diagnosis and the struggles she had to overcome to be with us. Her mom and siblings also spoke with us about the life they lived being related to a child with cancer. They didn’t take much time talking with us about their hardships, though, instead, they chose to speak more with us about how much we have helped and impacted them. Avalon’s mom told us how we had become their family and their support system, and her little brother couldn’t hold back how much he loved playing with all of us at the Dance Marathon. This day was when I decided that BuckeyeThon was more than just a student organization. I realized that this one organization was capable of changing the world. I realized that a disease so vicious does not discriminate against kids. I realized that Cancer is a reality for many families and many children will unfortunatley lose their battle. This day, I decided that I would put forth all of my effort to take on this ferocious beast that we call Cancer so that more parents got to hug their child at night.
We all come together every year with a common goal of ending Pediatric Cancer. Last year, over $1.7 Million was raised for Nationwide Children’s Hospital and For The Kids. This year, we plan to reach farther and raise even more because we believe that EVERY KID DESERVES TO BE A BUCKEYE and no child should have to battle cancer. If you are able, please donate toward our organization and cause. All donations go directly to Nationwide Children’s Hospital and fully fund the Psychosocial Program, as well as support the Hematology, Oncology, and Bone Marrow Transplant Unit. Your donations have directly provided a Sibling Service at the hospital for the brothers and sisters of patients. Without help from generous donors like you, none of this would be possble. Any donation is welcome and I would greatly appreciate your support.
Thank you for supporting our cause and being For The Kids!
For The Kids,
Fundraising Goal: $1,500.00
