I have had the privilege of watching this organization grow from my father's dining room to where it is now. The lives that we touch annually and the affect we have on the community around us makes being a part of this movement so worth it. "Changing children's lives through music" is what we are doing. The revolution has started and we are the spearhead. Change is inevitable and Im glad to be a part of the future and healing of our youth.
I've been fortunate enough to be part of Rock-It To A Cure since the very beginning, when Mark and Cindy had this grand idea to create a non-for-profit. There has never been much of a 'humble beginning' to RITAC since the goal was to never be just another non-for-profit. With Mark and Cindy's passion and desire to make this work, it truly has grown into a wonderful organization. After only a few short years we have been able to write checks to other non-for-profits that are making a significant impact on children's lives. During this last year's event, which was in support of GiGi's Playhouse, I was able to see firsthand the impact that RITAC was making. Not only were we raising money, but we were educating and raising awareness of Down's Syndrome to the concert goers. All of the RITAC events have proven to not only be a great music event, but also an event that shined a light on some incredible kids. I've truly have been blessed to be part of RITAC.
Being a board member of Rock-It to a Cure is amazingly satisfying and challenging. We are growing rapidly and in new and exciting ways everyday. I can imagine no other non-profit I would choose to give my time and money to. I hope when looking into RITAC, you find that we exceed your expectations as well!
When myself and the other members of the band, Réaul, joined Mark to put on the first Rock-It to a Cure event years ago, we only dreamed of being able to donate thousands of dollars to charities. Now, after two years of exponential growth, we are doing just that!
Hello, my name is Chris Robinson and I have been recently had the honor to be excepted as one of the board members to this wonderful organization and was made head of security for all functions. I can't tell you how honored it makes me feel to know that I I have an opportunity such as this to help out when I can and give back to others in need. The many people that I work with, and have met have been such a blessing to me. Mr. Mark McCollum and his family have welcomed me with open arms and and they would do the same for you. I can't say it enough that I am blessed be able to give back. Just come to one if out many upcoming events and find out for yourself. Thank you for your time.
Head of Security.
At the age of 3, my son was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes - a life changing event for him and all who love him. My husband and I wanted to do more than just sit back and accept this as "just the way it is." We wanted to raise money to find a cure, to create another life changing event for him and the millions of others who have this disease. This is how Rock-It to a Cure began. As others joined us in the journey, we were introduced to families who have children facing other challenges such as Down Syndrome and cancer. So, we expanded our vision to include other child centered organizations. We "spread the love" by choosing a new non-profit each year to benefit from our concert. Changing Children's Lives Through Music - it's what we do.
