For the past three years, my business partners and I have had the privilege to serve as the Presenting Sponsors for Richard's Run HHK 5K, one of Go4theGoal's most important fundraising initiatives. We have had the opporutnity to witness firsthand, the incredible impact that Go4theGoal has on the lives of children battling cancer as well as their families. The professionalism and dedication of everyone involved with this incredible organization, is unmatched and has solidified our support /commitment for years to come. We are proud to be aligned with this Foundation, which truly makes an incredible difference. CJR Trading

Go4thegoal Foundation has enlightened me to the possibilities available for families dealing with the devastation of pediatric cancer. The strength and love required for the fight is at the core of this Foundation. Beth and her Go4thegoal family have really opened doors for children to help them and their families live and grow in love and support. They work tirelessly, month after month trying to reach as many people as possible. The children amazing! My husband and I will continue to work humbly with Go4thegoal -and we do so with grace.

Our Spring Varsity Sports at Oswego HS did a weekend event where all our teams wore the laces and raised money. Our girls soccer team worked with Oswego East and did a great job raising money and awareness with an all day event that included activities, scrimmages, and events. It was a very good experience for our students and we hope to make it an annual event at Oswego High School.

Have the ability to make the donations more personal.

Again this year cupcakes by carousel created a go 4 goal cupcake. We had 3 different fundraisers at the cupcake by carousel locations..Montclair.Englewood and Ridgewood.We also sold $1.00 donation cards to be put on the wall with the donators name..Blake Buffer a young cancer survivor was at the Ridgewood location.3 years ago she was under going treatments. We definitely raised more $ and awareness then last year and we hope to continue supporting this cause to fight against childhood cancers.

Our son Dalton passed from Ewings Sarcoma in 2010. It is our pledge to raise awareness to this and other pediatric cancers. Raising enough funds to get our son Dalton's truck wrapped with Go4theGoal information along with a beautiful picture of our son. It is our honor to drive the truck publisizing this cause to raise awareness to pediatric cancers.

I work with many charities and causes and Go4thegoal is one of the best and most enjoyable to work with. I know the money we raise goes directly to support the children and the staff is an amazing group to work with. They have an amazing vision and are very organized in executing the vision. Their Lace-Up 4 Pediatric Initiative has impacted so many of the constituents I work with. I would encourage anyone who is looking for a cause to support to work with Go4theGoal.

Go4 the Goal is a wonderful non profit. Every penny goes to try to eliminate pediatric cancer and make the lives of cancer patients the best they can be. It is truly an organization from the heart.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

reaching out with an open hand and heart to children in need.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The true commitment of the people involved.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Give every penny to make the lives of cancer patients and their families a good as it can be.
