First - a thank you to the many people who have donated! We had a bad year with fundraisers and would like to ask you to get your friends and families to make a donation!
2021 has been a bad year for donations. We are about $150,000 short of the donations we took in the year before the pandemic started and had to turn down important grant requests.
We cancelled most of our live fundraisers over the last 2 years. However, donations directly from our website are actually up to the highest levels ever! So I was thinking about when my kids used to do school fundraisers where we had to buy magazines, or cookies, or junk or have car washes to raise money for the school. I always said I would rather just donate the cash and not waste my time and energy!
So instead of asking your friends and families to sponsor you for one of our 5k events – just ask them to make a donation in your honor! It is faster and easier.. and 100% of what they donate will go to brain tumor research! (If they do not select other usages when they donate). This is the most exciting time in brain tumor research – we are working on so many new things and there is finally a light at the end of the tunnel! This is not the time to cut back on research.
Have them go to virtualtrials.org and click on the DONATE button!
Thanks and have a happy new year!
