The foundation has hosted numerous major fundraising events to raise awareness about the children and young adults fighting cancer.
In 2008, “CancerCrusher Night”, our kick-off event, honored a young boy battling leukemia, and featured inspirational survivor speakers, a silent auction, raffle and a benefit concert. We raised $30,000 from the evening’s ticket sales, sponsorship, and private donations, to benefit The Valerie Center at the Monmouth Medical Children’s Hospital in New Jersey and “I’m Too Young For This Foundation”.
The following year, “CancerCrusher Night” was even more successful, raising over $40,000 in just one evening. Combined, these events attracted hundreds of people who joined together to support and honor pediatric patients and survivors.
The CancerCrusher Club at Fairfield University was founded in 2009 and supported local pediatric cancer organizations in fundraising and awareness initiatives in the Fairfield, CT area.
The unprecedented level of support from the community, speaks to what an inspired group can accomplish when brought together to fight the battle against pediatric cancer.
