September 2014 - Crosby'd Fund received an anonymous and incredibly generous donation for $250,000. This special donation will allow us to continue funding Dr. Li at the University of Rochester and also hire an additional researcher to support Dr. Li's efforts. Additionally, the funds will be used to sponsor the 2015 National Pediatric Neurology Conference which will focus on neuroblastoma. We were thrilled to accept this donation and grateful for the support.
September 2014 - For the first time ever, the weather was perfect for the PhotoFinish 5K race - finally no rain or snow! Over 200 friends and family joined us at the race and post-race party, and the love was palpable. We live in an incredible community that continues to step up to show their support and love for the fund year after year. We are forever grateful. This year, we raised almost $73,000 through team fundraising plus an additional $2,000 in t-shirt and hat sales. Thank you to everyone near and far that donated to the fund and that participated in the race. Because of all of you, we are helping to make a difference to children with neuroblastoma and working to find more effective and safe treatments.
