Some accomplishments we're proud of over the years include:

Awarding over $250,000 in college scholarships to young adults impacted by cancer all across the country

Distributing over 15,000 Guidebooks to individuals and cancer centers in all 50 US States

Responsibly allocating over 80% of all our spending towards mission related programs

Helping over 200 recently diagnosed young adult patients navigate their cancer experience every year

Effectively reducing our fundraising spending to less than 10% of our total expenditures by investing in programs like Team Fight and partnerships like 24 Hours of Booty, Rev3 Triathlon, 4K for Cancer, Maryland Half Marathon and more!
