Family Reach

Family Reach is a national organization alleviating the financial burden of cancer for patients and their families. Cancer cuts many household incomes in half as patients and caregivers put careers on hold during treatment. This loss of income paired with new, out-of-pocket costs forces families to make dangerous decisions – do they skip a chemo appointment to pay their mortgage? Through financial assistance and innovative financial interventions, we’re empowering families with the tools and knowledge they need to keep a roof over their heads and maintain access to treatment, ultimately increasing their loved one’s chances of survival. For more information visit

Project Purple

Project Purple has a mission of raising awareness and funds towards a cure for pancreatic cancer. Sadly, the statistics are staggering. Pancreatic cancer is the 4th largest killer of all cancer killers and the least funded of the top 10 cancers. It is also the only cancer on the top 10 list with a single digit survival rate after 5 years.


Addi’s Faith Foundation

“Your child has cancer”…4 simple words that can flip your world upside down in a heartbeat. It’s every parent’s worst nightmare and yet today, and tomorrow, and every day after that, 46 children’s parents will hear those devastating words.

That’s what happened to Addison Faith Bender’s family. In 2007, Amber’s daughter, Addison Faith, was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Sadly, Addi’s little body could only take so much and she died just a few weeks shy of her second birthday.  

After her fight ended, Addi’s Faith Foundation was born. In its 11th year, Addi’s Faith Foundation continues to raise funds for RESEARCH & RELIEF for families fighting this dreadful disease.  

 When you run with Addi’s Faith Foundation, you’ll be part of an exciting, fulfilling experience – knowing your dedicated fundraising efforts will help continue to provide much needed pediatric cancer research to end this dreadful disease.  You’ll also know that you’re helping lighten the financial load just a bit for families while treating a child with cancer.
