Create a Sign for Your Runner and Support Max Cure Foundation!
This year at the expo spectators, family members, and friends are invited to stop by and create signs to support their runners. There will be a small donation fee asked with 100% of the proceeds going toward the Max Cure Foundation. The mission of MCF is threefold. First it seeks to fund research to attempt to find cures for the various forms of childhood cancers and to discover less toxic treatments for the disease in children. As part of that portion of its mission, it is helping to fund an Immune Cell Therapy Laboratory at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Second, MCF established Roar Beyond Barriers, a program to financially assist low income and military families with a child battling cancer. Through monthly gift cards, families are able to purchase food and other necessities. Since the program¹s inception, 80 families in 12 states being treated in 21 hospitals have been helped. There are 48 families currently receiving assistance. The third mission is advocacy to increase government funding for childhood cancer research. As part of its advocacy mission, MCF was in the forefront of the #SaveJosh campaign and it’s Vice Chairman, Richard Plotkin, has been invited to serve on a committee consisting of a limited number of childhood cancer advocates dealing with the White House.
