I am writing today to let you know that Go4theGoal Foundation is a resource to doctors, social workers and families affected by pediatric cancers. Some information about G4G is below, and more can be found on our website, http://www.Go4theGoal.org .

Go4theGoal Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit charitable organization founded in 2006 by Dr. Richard and Beth Stefanacci, soon after their oldest child was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer. Go4theGoal provides children undergoing cancer treatment and their families with financial assistance, runs fun hospital-based programs, grants special wishes and supplies state-of-the-art electronic products to children and pediatric oncology units in over 40 hospitals across the country. Since 2007, G4G has funded over $500,000 in innovative pediatric cancer research.

In 2011, to help raise awareness and funding for children affected by cancer during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, Go4theGoal Foundation, a New Jersey-based pediatric cancer foundation, initiated
National Dress 4 Pediatric Cancer Day to be held annually on September 27th. We had a very successful day in our first year, and are looking to raise at least $100,000 on September 27, 2012.

Regardless of the campaign, funds raised can remain in the local community in which they are raised. Participating schools and organizations may direct Go4theGoal to distribute the money they raise to children battling cancer in their community, the pediatric oncology unit at a local hospital or to the G4G Foundation to continue funding research and providing scholarships to those whose ultimate goal is to cure pediatric cancer.

Additionally, we hope that you will help us get the word out about National Dress 4 Pedatric Cancer Day and our other efforts toward the ultimate goal…curing pediatric cancers.

I am available at your convenience to provide you with more information. Please do not hesitate to contact me. [email protected]
