great opportunity to just jump in and help. Nat and Heather were outstanding, easy going and there was plenty of things to do.
Great organization! I volunteered for one day at the Sarcoma Cup fundraiser. Great people. Nat was very easy going and organized.
It is one thing to be hit by a nasty disease, it is another one to not know what the prognosis is and face a medical body that doesn't really know what to tell you! Nathalie faced it all with great strength and courage and extensively researched the little information available. She decided to help others by creating this foundation, instead of just focusing on her own treatment. I participated to the organisation of the first Sarcoma race and was amazed by the organisation and professionalism.
Nat founded Beat Sarcoma as a survivor of Sarcoma cancer. She is a fighter that can move mountains for the cause always having new ideas to raise money for the research on that forgotten cancer that affect mainly the children and young adults. Beat Sarcoma is actively working with a top 5 university helping funding their research on this type of cancer. Lots of people volunteer in that great nonprofit as I do and it is worth it because 100% of the proceeds go to the research and all of that with a big smile. Great place to volunteer.
Nat leads a great organization. Her dedication and determination is inspiring. And she has great ideas that integrate with her own life and bring people together to create community that really makes BeatSarcoma a strong organization..
I admire the founder's take on life after surviving sarcoma and her devotion to help beating this disease. With very scarce resources the organization has generated visibility and awareness about sarcoma, thanks to the ingenuity of a small group of committed and energetic people.
Nat Criou has done an amazing job running BeatSarcoma. She works tirelessly to generate awareness of this type of cancer and has touched many people's lives with her positive energy. I'm always impressed by her strength and energy.
I have volunteered for BeatSarcoma on a number of events, including the Sarcoma Cup. I find Nat a delight to work with. I am particularly impressed with the focus of this cause (sarcoma is less funded and understood than other cancers) and the transparency of the organization (they publish their financial statements in Google Docs). I would recommend them to anyone.
The Beat Sarcoma Cup is a top notched well organized and well run benifit sailing regatta that Nathalie Criou has organized with the help of Richmond Yacht Club. Nathalie has helped to shed light on a type of cancer and has oped many eyes to a disease that needs so much attention in medical research to help find a cure. If you are a sailor and want to help in some small way, find a boat, find a ride and come help for a cure.
I have been the race director of the BeatSarcoma run for the last two years,and have enjoyed seeing both runners and walkers show their support for sarcoma cancer research. Nathalie Criou's tireless efforts to increase exposure and education through BeatSarcoma events has contributed greatly to advancing this this worthy cause. I look forward to working with Nathalie again for the 2010 BeatSarcoma run. Samuel Harvell
