Reviews for Go4thegoal Foundation
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!
Here at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia we consider ourselves to be fortunate to partner with pediatric oncology foundations such as Go 4 The Goal because they assist us in our efforts to serve families best. Go 4 The Goal recently provided several families with the opportunity to attend a Philadelphia Soul game. This was a wonderful opportunity for families to see an exciting sporting event and to spend quality time with one another. We are so appreciative of all that Go 4 The Goal does in support of families impacted by pediatric cancer.
Go 4 The Goal has been an incredible foundation to work with. Our patients and families benefit from both the financial assistance they provide, as well as the Karts 4 Kids program. Go 4 The Goal makes their processes easy to use and I am always amazed at their quick turnaround time. The financial assistance we can access has been critical to meeting the needs of our families, who often struggle making ends meet when their children are regularly in the hospital or clinic, or the family faces loss of an income. Go 4 The Goal is reliable and I can always count on them to help when a need arises.
The Karts 4 Kids program has been such a fun program to implement into our hospital unit. The Kart has been an opportunity to motivate our patients with prizes or to cheer up a patient when they are having a rough day. The Kart provides fun and interactive games and toys, as well as soft, plush items. Go 4 The Goal keeps us well stocked and the patients always have a great array of items to choose from.
Go 4 The Goal has proven to be a dependable and caring organization, committed to assisting families in need and making patients smile. Thank you Go 4 The Goal!!

“We absolutely love the Karts 4 Kids program. The program was so simple and easy to setup and follow. We just stated what our needs were and they sent all the supplies right at our door step. We currently have 8 beds in our bone marrow transplant unit and every week we go around with our cart and go make our patients smile! The kids get to pick out their favorite prize after a week of treatment and since most of them are here for very long periods of time, it is a perfect opportunity for them to be rewarded for all of their patience and bravery.”

Head Coach Stephanie V. Gaitley says, "Go4theGoal is a great organization raising money and awareness for a great cause! Having a niece with cancer as a child, this cause is near and dear to my heart. The Fordham University, teams and staffs enjoyed being able to support this organization and raise awareness for pediatric cancer." The 2015-16 season was the first time that we had a Go4theGoal game and we are already extremely excited to plan for our next Go4theGoal game in the 2016-17 season. Their staff is very organized, gets back to you quickly and are amazing people! I would encourage other teams and organizations to support this amazing cause!

Go4theGoal has been an inspirational organization to work with. The people coordinating the events and reaching out to University's to be a part of the wonderful cause are so friendly and easy to work with! La Salle University dedicated a Men's and Women's Basketball game to the Go4theGoal Lace Up Campaign during the 2015-2016 season. We had a massive turnout and amazing of support and donations coming from our gold out staff, students and teams. Everyone was so blessed to be a part of supporting such a meaningful cause and touching organization. The Explorers plan on dedicating a game every season from now on to the Go4theGoal Lace Up campaign and definitely looking forward to incorporating more sports teams at the University into the cause every year! Thank you to this amazing organization for letting us get involved and raise funds help support the pediatric fight against cancer!
We incorporated the campaign into our softball game at the University of Illinois. The team feel passionate about this cause and would like to dedicate a game to recognize cancer survivors and their families. The online donation page made it very easy for fans, parents, and the community to donate and help out without having to come to the actual game. We were able to reach out goal before game day because of the donation page.
As an oncology social worker, I regularly reach out to organizations for patient/family assistance. Go4theGoal is always happy to help my families and the turn-around time is incredible. Thank you for all you do!

As an pediatric oncology social worker, I have been along side families whose children are going through very difficult times. It goes without saying how difficult the treatment is on the child but I believe it is even more difficult on the parent for many reasons. Supporting their child during treatment is only part of the concern. With most families, one of the parents usually has to leave work to care for their child. This drop in income causes a great deal of financial hardship for the family. This hardship is doubled when it involves a single parent being the caregiver. One of my responsibilities is to seek out foundations who are able to support the family during this time.
This year, during the holiday season, I supported many newly diagnosed families who were so anxious about not being able to provide a Christmas for their family. I submitted a referral to Go 4 the Goal for one family. I did remind the family of the fact I was not sure how much of the child's wish list could be fulfilled by G4TG. The family stated they would be grateful for any assistance they would receive.
On the day of the delivery, when I called the parents in to my office, the Mom began to cry and Dad did his best not to join her. They took everything out of the bags and were so excited showing each other the items. They looked like children opening gifts on Christmas morning. They could not say thank you enough and I reminded them it was not me, but G4TG, who is giving their children a Christmas.
I feel so blessed to be the conduit for such a wonderful foundation. They never hold back and they're giving far exceeds anything any one would or should expect.
I am thanking you, not only from me but for my families. Wishing you all the best in the coming year!
