2017 CHARITIES SUPPORTED

Three charities have been chosen by the foundation as recipients of the monies to be raised in 2017. Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, The Children's Heart Foundation, and Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation - focus on funding research to cure diseases impacting kids (juvenile diabetes, congenital heart defects, and pediatric cancer, respectively). 



Founded by parents of children with juvenile diabetes, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation has one mission: to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research. Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation is the leading charitable funder and advocate of Type I diabetes research worldwide. As many as 3 million Americans have Type I diabetes. Insulin is not a cure for diabetes, nor does it prevent the devastating complications of the disease. For more information, please visit the website at www.JDRF.org.




Founded in 1996, The Children's Heart Foundation funds the most promising research to advance the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of congenital heart defects. Congenital heart defects are America’s #1 birth defect--more infants die of heart defects than any other birth defect. In the U.S. alone, nearly 1% of babies (40,000 each year) are born with a congenital heart defect. For more information, please visit the website at www.childrensheartfoundation.org.



Founded in late 1992, Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation is a national organization whose mission is to eliminate pediatric cancer and to provide hope and support to those who are touched by it.  Over 12,000 children are diagnosed with cancer each year, and cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children under 15.  For more information, please visit the website at www.bearnecessities.org.
