Go4theGoal is a great organization to work with! To see how much the work they do, and how much they help children and families affected by cancer, is very fulfilling! Go4theGoal really does make a difference in, not just their community, but hundreds of communities across the country!

My name is Hunter Zampa, and I am a teen chef. I have been featured on Rachael Ray vs Guy Fieri Kids Cookoff, The Rachael Ray Show, and even won the Food Network show Chopped! I recently did an event with Go4theGoal called the Kid Chef Cookoff. We raised over 15,000 dollars for a boy with leukemia in my hometown, and Go4theGoal was the best. We would have not been able to do what we accomplished without the help from Beth, Heather, and everyone else from the charity. I would love to do another event with Go4theGoal, and had an amazing time working with them!

I am on the board for FCProvidence Soccer Club in PA. We decided to support Pediatric Awareness Month in September. I found Go 4 the Goal by searching for the gold sock with the gold ribbon. What a great way to generate awareness. The kids wore them to all of their games during the month of September. In addition, Go 4 the Goal sent us merchandise to sell to raise funds for a very important cause. It was great to get the children and families involved in this effort. Even families from the opposing teams not only contributed but also thanked us for supporting such a great cause.

Go 4 the Goal also allows you to choose where the funds go, which was very important to us. They were a pleasure to work with by providing all of the information and materials, as well as excellent communication.

I am very pleased to have had the pleasure to support such a great case and to partner with this amazing organization.

My husband and I coach for Barberton Youth Soccer and we heard about this program through a newspaper article. The reason why we got involved in this wonderful cause is a few years ago our oldest son was having some health issues, we took him to the doctors the him some blood work, the warned us what they were testing for and one of the things on the list was childhood cancer. We waited a week for the results it was the longest week of our lives, it turned out he had mono. I can't imagine what these young cancer patients and their families go through. We love that Go 4 the Gold gives back to children right in our own community.

Thank you for letting our team participate in such a wonderful cause.

I am the parent of a young survivor, and was moved to help when I found out my son's hospital would benefit. He is now a healthy soccer player, so this was a perfect way give back. Go 4 the Goal was very easy to work with and prompt in responding to questions. They provided posters, literature, balloons - everything we needed for a smooth fundraiser. The shoelaces were very well received by the families who were eager to support the cause.

It is such an honor to have been blessed with the friendship of the Stefanacci family. Their graciousness and goodness is so heartwarming. Go4TheGoal is helping thousands of children affected by cancer achieve their goals...especially when it is so hard for them to keep up with their schoolwork and classmates. As I treasure the memories of sitting side by side with Richard (as his homebound instructor), I know Richard is guiding the Go4TheGoal Foundation with his spirit.

This season the Ivy League participated in a conference wide Go4TheGoal Lace-up weekend. Following the Ivy Conference meeting the Ivy League enthusiastically agreed to support a proposal to generate awareness for the Go4TheGoal Foundation.

During the opening weekend of Ivy League play each University wore their laces and home sites decorated their fields. Personally, the Princeton Tigers were extremely excited to wear their laces and headbands to help generate awareness for an outstanding cause. The players were thrilled to support an organization that represents something truly meaningful. The events of this weekend had impacts throughout the department as various coaching staffs asked how they too can become involved with the Go4TheGoal Foundation.

The Princeton Tigers will continue to support the Go4TheGoal Foundation, as they are touched by the mission of this phenomenal organization.

I have been involved with Go4theGoal since it's establishment in 2006 and the much needed support they provide for cancer patients and their families is incredible. One of the most wonderful things about Go4theGoal is that all funds raised stay local which allows everyone involved in a Go4theGoal fundraiser to really feel like they are making a difference. Everyone working at Go4theGoal is completely selfless and their hard work and dedication to the cause is remarkable. Go4theGoal has grown immensely over the last eight years and the impact they have on people's lives will only continue to grow as they do.

Throughout the past couple of years I have found that volunteering at Go4TheGoal is great! I still remember when Go4TheGoal was started and now it has grown to be such an amazing organization. I enjoy volunteering at events and actually have a lot of fun doing so. I think the work that this organization does for children diagnosed with cancer is so important. They provide so much help and make so many children so happy. I also love that my high school participates too. I love when we have the lace up sports games each year and the dress down day to raise money and awareness. Go4TheGoal has made a great impact on many lives including mine. I love being a part of this organization and can't wait to volunteer for the next events.

I have had a wonderful experience working with Go4theGoal. Beth got in contact with me and we started a "Kart4Kids" program at my local hospital. We visit the hospital and let kids pick a gift off of the cart that they get to keep all for themselves. It was amazing to see the smiles brought to their faces. It also felt amazing to see all the parents smile while their child was playing with his or her new toy. Go4theGoal brings a little happiness and a smile to these children and their families dealing with cancer. This is an absolutely wonderful organization that I am happy to be working with.
