“Kudos to all who participate in giving of themselves, their time, and their talent to help children they’ve never met. Life offers many paths to contribute, seek redemption or just help tilt the axis away from tragedy and back toward joyousness. The selfless work done by all on behalf of innocents who must stare down the bleak reality of cancer is worthy of praise, encouragement, and support” – Eric Fuller, Forbes
Tremendous thanks to all who participated, donated, sponsored, worked, or volunteered at the event.
Huge THANK YOU to Frank Chin for the terrific photos!
