What a Success! We raised more than $11,000 for childhood cancer research.
Wow, what a day we had! Thank you so much for helping us raise funds for St. Baldrick's Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research. We are proud to say that, together, we raised more than $11,500!!! Not too shabby for our first year. We couldn't have asked for more beautiful weather. It was an amazing event!
The St. Baldrick's Foundation does a tremendous job making sure your donations are used in the most effective way. As the largest private funder of childhood cancer research grants, St. Baldrick's promotes promising cooperative research and clinical trials that will hopefully someday deliver a cure for childhood cancer.
Event Photos: A big thank you to Tuscan Sun for photographing the event. We have some amazing pictures from the Bucs Thundering 5K and the St. Baldrick's event. Check them out!
T-shirts: If you would like to purchase extra Bucs Thundering t-shirts or have children who ran for free that you would like to surprise with a shirt, please visit Threads for Hope where you'll be able to buy shirts directly.
We have so many people to thank. A huge thank you to our incredible Sponsors, for without you, this event would not have taken place. We hope to take this event to the next level next year through the addition of even more corporate sponsors and community involvement. So, if you enjoyed your experience this year, please talk it up with your colleagues and put us in touch with your company so they too can help the cause.
We would like to thank all of the volunteers for doing a tremendous job throughout the day. We cannot show enough gratitude for all that you did to help make the event a success! You guys showed up and everything came together. Thank you for running our registration, check in and swag bag tents, setting up the event, throwing corn starch, filling cups of water and a huge thanks to those who helped clean up! You're the BEST!
If you have any suggestions on how we can improve this event, please feel free to contact me. This was our first event and we would love to make it bigger and better next year. I have heard a lot of good things and there are definitely things we will do better. Thank you again for all that you have done and we look forward to seeing you again next year.
With gratitude -
