I helped to raise money for childhood cancer research with: Mojo Risin

I'm raising money for childhood cancer research! Please help contribute in memory of our sweet Maxwell and the many others who are still fighting or have earned their angel wings.

Our kids are our future, let's help them out! Childhood cancers are different than adult, and the research to improve the care of these kids is far underfunded. Please help out. Every $20 (or more) helps!

Unfortunately our family knows this all too well as our sweet Maxwell was diagnosed with cancer (Leukemia, ALL) at his 1 month well baby visit. He spent the next 8 months at Duke battling it before he gained his angel wings. We are forever grateful we got to spend that time with him and enjoy all of the laughs and smiles with him, but we want to help others with better treatment options & outcome. Please check the video below to see a photo collage of his super adorable (I'm a little biased :) ) smiling face.

This is the 5th year I've taken part in the St Baldrick's "Growler" Volleyball Tournament. Last year, we had record donations of over $127,000! Please help us surpass that this year. At that amount, we were the 2nd largest St Baldrick's event in North Carolina. In this, our ninth year of this tournament, our donations may hit the half million dollar amount for children's cancers. Last year, our team, Mojo Risin', made it to the 5th place fundraising (out of the 32 teams) with $3662, nearly double our $1860 from the year before. We want to do our part to exceed that this year. (Tax deductible) donations can be made until Sunday 8/18 through the "Donate" button to the left. Thank you in advance!

Also, everyone local to Raleigh, NC is welcome to come to our final tournament night Tues 8/20 at Springdale Area Recreation Club. All 32 teams will be in a bracket to battle it out for the top honors. There's a band, wide variety of local food & beer offerings, St Baldrick's Head Shaving, raffles, and more. Check out the website for more details, and drone video from past years: http://growlervolleyball.com/

Thank you!

Mark
