Go4thegoal was a major supporter when our organization, the Children's Cancer Therapy Development Institute, was raising funds for a new microscope. With their support, we were able to purchase an incredibly powerful microscope that has fundamentally changed the type of experiments we are able to do - it's been amazing! We are so grateful for their support.

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 was incredibly helpful and hands on. Karen Flint was exceptional with her communication and organization. As a student, Karen made the process so easy. Will definitely be working with Go4theGoal again!

“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!

The Go4thegoal organization is very impressive and always follow through. We started our partnership with them in 2015 and I look forward to continuing to work with them into the future. Beth and her team should be commended on their hard work. Not only do they raise money but more importantly they provide comfort, joy and hope to children and families dealing with pediatric cancer. On behalf of our patients and staff at Maria Fareri Children's Hopsital, a member of the WMCHealth Network, thank you for your great work.

My daughter was diagnose with stage 3 sarcoma and go for the goal reach out to our family. They were there and very supportive. My daughter is a teen. They sent her an iPad and beat headphones to help her with her hospital stay and time at the clinic. They also did a fundraiser at her school

She is so sweet and understanding of what you are going through. She has made a huge difference in our lives and we love her.

Go4theGoal has helped us in so many ways. Our hospital won the holiday contest and we received amazing gifts!
Recently, they helped send 2 children to the beach. These kids are on hospice and wanted a last trip to the beach with their families and Go4theGoal made that happen! Thank you to all the staff, volunteers, and donors at Go4theGoal! We appreciate you and your kindness!

Wow! Go4theGoal went above and beyond to grant a dying wish to a young girl who wished to meet Winter the Dolphin in Tampa, FL. I sent Go4thegal an email on a Friday afternoon and we had the trip planned by Saturday afternoon. They were flexible, caring and professional. They made the arrangements without hesitation and took on the child's wish without looking back. There were some obstacles to jump during the planning process, but Go4thegoal jumped them and went on. By the end of the weekend the trip was planned. A girl traveled from Chattanooga, TN to Tamp, F: with her parents and 2 brothers. They found them a hotel on the beach, the family had never seen the beach. They made sure money was not an issue. They allowed the family to meet Winter the Dolphin and make happy memories before she left this earth. The girl tried shrimp for the first time and went to the spa for her first time. She enjoyed floating in the pool with her brothers and sitting in the hot tub with her mom and being with her Daddy. Thank you Go4thegoal for making my job so rewarding. I was able to tell the family about your foundation and tell her about the amazing trip you had planned. I will not forget her fave when I showed her the video to the hotel.
