Welcome to the With Purpose Hero Fund page! In
2021, we transitioned the organization our son, Sam, inspired into a
partnership with St. Baldrick’s. In the six years we operated as an independent
organization, we accomplished so much! We raised more than $1,000,000! We
educated and activated thousands of people across the country. We shared a
story that gave people hope. We broke a world record. We made an impact on a
really big, really tough problem. We contributed to research and legislation
that will continue to positively impact kids with cancer.
Through this partnership we will still get to invest in the most innovative and promising pediatric cancer research initiatives. In addition, we are joining some of the most successful nonprofit organizations in the world to make a difference for kids with cancer. And we are letting Sam’s light continue to shine in this world.
Thank you all for your love and support. Our family would not be where we are today without you.
With so much love and gratitude,
Erin Benson (Sam’s mom)
