As a result of generous donations from our supporters, we’ve been able to expand our services in the past couple years and provide individualized experiences to local families! This past year, we provided a limo ride and Queen for a Day party for a young girl and eight of her friends. At the party, the family was surprised with a trip to the Wisconsin Dells.
We partnered with the Geneva Cancer Run to bring many surprises to a young boy’s benefit, with nearly 150 bikes in attendance. The For A Day Foundation gifted the family a weekend getaway package to the Mall of America.
Lastly, we had the privilege of coordinating with the Minnesota Vikings and gave a young boy tickets to the historic playoff game against the New Orleans Saints. At the game, Roger Goodell, NFL commissioner, personally delivered Super Bowl tickets for his family of four.
We’re still going strong with our hospital events, hosting twice as many now – another result of the financial support we’ve received in recent years. We can’t thank you enough as we continue to grow and provide reprieve to families battling cancer.
