PEDIATRIC CANCER FOUNDATION
STRIKE OUT PEDIATRIC CANCER PCF BOWLATHON
PCF works toward this vision by supporting the seminal research, doctors, and institutions where progress is made.
PCF is proof that individuals and communities can accomplish amazing things. In a time of underfunded hospitals and scarce government grants, our 200 volunteers raise vitally needed funds through an annual Walkathon, Luncheon, Evening Event series, and countless bake sales, bowl-a-thons, and satellite events.
Pediatric Cancer Foundation’s mission is to develop a cure for childhood cancer. For more than 45 years, the 501(c) (3) nonprofit has raised money for game-changing research, patient treatment and endowing world renowned doctors at the hospitals PCF supports.

GOD’S LOVE WE DELIVER
The mission of God's Love We Deliver is to improve the health and well-being of men, women and children living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other serious illnesses by alleviating hunger and malnutrition. We prepare and deliver nutritious, high-quality meals to people who, because of their illness, are unable to provide or prepare meals for themselves. We also provide illness-specific nutrition education and counseling to our clients, families, care providers and other service organizations.
All of our services are provided free of charge without regard to income.
SNACK is the creation of New York mom and SNACK's Executive Director, Jackie Ceonzo. In 2003, after being unable to find a fulfilling program for her son, Joey, she worked with a team of professionals to create a place where any child, despite their abilities, can socialize and enjoy activities while learning practical skills in a collaborative, fun, and welcoming environment. At SNACK, children of ALL abilities are welcome including those with no diagnosis. ALL SNACK activities are open to the general public.
THE VETERANS EDUCATION PROJECT
The Veterans Education Challenge is dedicated to sending United States Military veterans to college by providing them with needed scholarships that the GI Bill does not cover. For every dollar up to $1 million raised by the general public, the Richards family will match it, with a guarantee that 100% goes toward veteran scholarships.
We know how valuable our veterans are, both in combat and in the classroom. However, these dedicated and loyal men and women must make big adjustments to enter college in hopes of developing their post-military career. Veterans make up only 4% of the undergraduate college population and the unemployment rate for Veterans is 7.2% compared to the national average of 5.2%. A majority of veterans have a spouse and/or children, so education is an added financial burden that many are hesitant to take. With America’s help, the Veterans Education Challenge will raise college enrollment and the graduation rate, which will undeniably lower unemployment, one Veteran collegiate scholar at a time.
