Welcome to Patty and Reagan's Fundraising Page!
On July 26, 2018, myslef and my 13 year old neice Reagan Henkel will participate in the Young Associates Board’s (YAB) 16th annual Run for Gus 5k, which raises funds to advance research and support services at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago for patients with brain tumors. This will be Reagan's first 5K and a fun summer project fundraising! Reagan is an amazing kid who looks for what she can do for others first and foremost! I'm so proud to be doing this with her in honor of our freind's son Tyler!
We walk, run and gather in memory of brave, roaring Tyler. His beautiful smile and infectious laugh is missed by his friends and family every day. Tyler will live forever in our hearts and we are determined to continue to fight for a cure for this awful disease as well as support families of children with brain tumors. Pediatric brain tumors are the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in children and are fatal for almost half of those diagnosed. Yet, only $1 million is given annually for pediatric brain tumor research by government agencies. YAB has raised more than $1.5 million to date to further this lifesaving cause.
Please support our efforts by making a gift today! Any amount will make a difference, and all donations are tax-deductible and will be acknowledged by Lurie Children’s Foundation.
With your help, more children battling brain tumors can receive the best healthcare possible and the opportunity to reach their greatest potential. Thank you!
