Fight Gabby Fight
Thank you for visiting our page!
Team "Fight Gabby Fight" is composed of a husband and wife who want to do everything possible to raise funds for Children's cancer research. This hike will be Patrick's 3rd year participating and Amanda's 2nd year. Each year our goal is to raise more funds and awareness then we did they year before.
With that said, this year we will again be hiking 26+ miles in a single day. We hike in honor of all kids diagnosed with cancer. We hike to raise much needed funds for research and to develop clinical trials so that maybe one day, childhood cancer will no longer exist. Honestly? We hike because we have to do something to help.
We are very excited to participate in Ultimate Hike, a program of CureSearch for Children's Cancer! The funds we raise supports their mission to fund and support targeted and innovative children's cancer research! In addition, they are the authoritative source for information resources about Childrens cancer for families and their support systems.
So... What can you do? We are asking you not to help us, but to help these children beat this dreaded disease. Any amount donated will help. Sadly, 5 of the 43 children diagnosed with cancer, everyday do no survive. Unfortunately, most of the treatment and procols for treating childhood cancer are those used to treat adult cancer. In 20 year, there have only been three new drugs introduced to help cure childhood cancer. To us, this is simply unacceptable.
Together, we are fighting for the future every child deserves and every parent dreams of.
We thank you from the bottoms of our hearts for you kindness and support
- Amanda & Patrick
