Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to keep fundraising so that we can provide support to kids with cancer and to support the funding for the integrative therapies that are finally being introduced in our local children's hospital.

Increase the reach of our annual March Forth 5k/15k with better timing and marketing. Increase the number of smaller fundraisers we do each year as well. We also want to reach corporate entities for corporate backing.

We have a board of people who are committed to making a difference in this area.

In 2017, the Stand Firm Warrior Foundation donated $5000 to Levine Children's Hospital in Charlotte, NC to support the Reiki initiative within their newly founded Comprehensive Wellness Center. In 2018, we donated $10,000 to the Reiki initiative within the Comprehensive Wellness Center at Levine Children's Hospital in Charlotte, NC. In 2018, we hosted 11 Gold Games with our local schools. We strongly feel that focusing on the youth of today will greatly impact the future of childhood cancer. Our Gold Games have impacted thousands of students and was duplicated last year at a high school adjacent to our county.

In the years to come we simply want to do more.
