drumSTRONG is a great idea executed by someone with no managerial or business experience. Other than companies owned or funded by his Dad, Scott has no idea what he's doing in trying to run an organization like this. His trademark is unprotected, his financials are perpetually late. And worst of all, less than 10% of the money raised at the annual drumstrong event even counts as profit for distribution to those organizations which drumstrong is chartered to help. In short, this is an organization with declining support, declining revenue, declining impact, and badly in need of an Executive Director with a clue about what he's doing.

This review is riddled with animosity and inaccuracies. Among them :: The % of funds disbursed through our drumSTRONG efforts supporting important cancer initiatives. Revenue is raised by and for participating organizations. 90% to 100% of those funds are donated to their causes. Our board includes respected certified counselors and internationally recognized directors of oncology services. Our staff includes many from successful professional organizations and are 100% volunteers (with good hearts). Jeff Gregory (jagbcl reviewer) was paid to file for the Trademark registration. Financials are in order. drumSTRONG is gaining global momentum daily. We accept and appreciate assistance from competent, giving folks. Yes, an Executive Director would be welcomed.

DrumsForCures: drumSTRONG This is a great organization and it's founder Scott Swimmer works tirelessly ongoing to help raise funds to support cancer research and general awareness to the problem of the huge number of people who suffer from this terrible disease. The major event that they hold in May of each year is just a wonderful and heart moving experience. It is a marathon drumming event that this past year went for 27 hours. The people who take part are caring and wonderful souls.
