Chondrosarcoma Foundation’s Third Anniversary Shows Appreciation to It’s Donors, Supporters and Partners
During the past three years many CS Patients, caregivers, family members and friends have supported the Foundation through their donations and fund-raising activities. We received donations from family members in honor of their lost loved ones to this beast. We have had others like Julie Mathews that supported 5K walk / runs. Lifecycle holdings in Franklin, Tennessee hosted a biking event to honor an employee with CS. Amber Sarcone, a teacher and guidance counselor with CS challenged her students to raise money for the Foundation and gave the class the raised the most money a pizza party. The most elaborate, unique, awe-inspiring fund-raising event came from Ricky Ashman from Sussex England to honor his Mum Harriet (a CS Survivor). He raised money for the Foundation by sky diving 15,000 feet. We invite you to check out his sky diving video by clicking the link below.
For the past two years the Foundation has organized and hosted a 5K Run / Walk in early October we call “Steppin for the Cause.” Last year we also teamed up with HundredX for a fund-raising activity that paid participants who signed up $2 for each survey they completed on goods and services. Every time we host an event, we have a core group of Shayna’s friends as well as our friends and family join us. The core group is the heart of honoring Shayna’s legacy and keeping her memory alive in our hearts.
In addition to family and friends, we are grateful for our corporate donors including Fox & Roach Trident Charities, a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway in Devon, PA and CSX Transportation from Andover, MA. Finally, we appreciate the opportunities and support to work with Inhibrx, a biomedical company based in San Diego, CA. and Servier Pharmaceuticals, headquartered in France with an office in Boston, MA. Both companies have clinical trials for chondrosarcoma.
Our fight against chondrosarcoma will continue through our efforts to educate, advocate, and contribute to research, clinical trials to improve care and hopefully one day soon, find a cure.
