The Loyola Volleyball Team used this Non-profit to raise money for the local pediatric centers. The staff was very responsive and always worked hard to make sure any questions, concerns or requests were taken care of in a timely matter. We will definitely be using this foundation again for our gold match next year!

The Haddon Heights High School Boys Soccer Program participated in the Go4The Goal-LaceUp4Pediatric Cancer this past Fall and plan to participate in this great event for years to come. Karen Flint made the entire process very easy and enjoyable. The entire program and our opponent for the event-Paulsboro- looked great wearing the yellow laces.

The Haddon Heights Boys alone raised over $500.00 for the campaign .We were so glad to participate and assist in this wonderful cause.

Sincerely,

Coach Eppright

Go4theGoal has been nothing but superb! Great mission, great people, great story! As a partner school with them, our students have the opportunity to continue answering their school's mission to be servant leaders. Go4theGoal makes that experience and opportunity a great one, providing just an ounce more of hope and love in a time where it can seem gone.

Go4thegoal staff have worked well with me and our campaign for UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital Oakland. They have been responsive, supportive, creative, and persistent in helping us to raise money for our Psychology Oncology Program. Our initiatives in the community are on the rise and Go4thegoal have been a large part of that success. We look forward to continued work with the entire team.

Go4theGoal is truly a great organization, and the LaceUp4PediatricCancer was an amazing campaign! Temple University's Field Hockey team loved working with the Foundation, and raising money and awareness to such a great cause. We are looking forward to working with Go4theGoal in the near future. Karen Flint and the staff were so great to work and easy to work with. We would encourage other teams to LaceUp4PediatricCancer, and work with Go4theGoal Foundation!

Go4theGoal made it incredibly easy to raise money for such a worthy cause. With just a little work on my end I was able to set up a donation page and have all the players on my team join and create. We exceeded out goal because it was so easy to share the pages and get donations.

Any time I had any questions they were quick to respond and they made everything easy. If you want to raise money for Pediatric Cancer, this is the group to do it with!

When we became aware of the opportunity to raise funds and awareness for kids with cancer that are being treated locally we knew we could make an impact!

When we announced to our coaches, players, and families that we were taking part in this event the support and interest was even greater than we expected. Many people are impacted by pediatric cancer and this cause seemed to really hit home for our players and families. It was also a way to easily introduce the idea of philanthropy and giving back to our young players, and many of them became our most vocal supporters! Doing this on a club-wide basis, and encouraging full teams to buy and participate, made a great statement for our club on the event day. Plus, at just $5.00 a pair to get involved it allowed anyone who was interested to participate in the event. Our parents, players, and coaches displayed great pride showing off their laces and it helped to reinforce our club’s message about the importance of being engaged in and giving back to our communities.

Finally, not only is this a great cause to support it is also very easy to administer and a fun and visible event to be a part of. We would highly recommend Go4theGoal’s Lace Up for Pediatric Cancer event to any youth sport organization that wants to give back to their community!

Go 4 The Goal has been a phenomenal organization to work with. They are responsive and are quick to help in a pinch. While they provide financial support to our oncology patients/families they are also, on occasion able to help with fun requests such as toys or items to help keep patients busy during long term hospitalizations. They recently sent one of our patients a Lego kit, The Tower Bridge of London to build. The patient has it almost half completed and just beams when talking about how fun it is to put together. Thank you Go 4 The Goal for helping not only with financial hardships during pediatric oncology treatments but for helping improve the quality of life for our young patients during long term hospitalizations. We hope to continue our work with Go 4 The Goal and appreciate everything they do for our patients, families, and other children's healthcare organizations around the country.

Go4thegoal was fantastic to work with! I don't think that I have ever had such quick turn around when working with a foundation to help a family. I contacted Go4thegoal and that same afternoon they had reached out to the family and the family received the assistance needed! They were very responsive and easy to work with. I look forward to working with Go4thegoal in the future!
