3rd annual MX Kids Racing for Hope Fundraiser Event May 3rd
The 3RD Annual MX Kids Racing for Hope will take place at Old Bridge Township’s Raceway Park on May 3 2008. The proceeds will benefit Embrace Kids Foundation of New Brunswick NJ.
Rocky Cagno, a fifth grader at Frost Elementary School in East Brunswick NJ, and local racers are once again ready to participate. The support over the last 2 years has been amazing and everyone involved in this fundraiser have had a large impact in helping the cause. Their support has not only been financial but by inspiring other children to get involved as well.
The Embrace Kids Foundation (formerly The Institute for Children) www.embracekids.org helps many children and their families by providing counselors, educational teachers, financial assistance and research to develop new treatment and a search for a cure for children with cancer and blood disorders.
The 2008 fundraiser will once again be held in conjunction with Raceway Park’s Youth day on Saturday May 3rd 2008.
Any youth rider or businesses wishing to participate by sponsoring the event or making monetary or raffle product donations please contact Rocco Cagno @ 732-266-0306 or email firstname.lastname@example.org by April 15th 2008.
About the Embrace Kids Foundation www.embracekids.org :
In 1991, a group of parents, staff and friends joined together to form The Institute for Children with Cancer and Blood Disorders. The original group has flourished into the newly renamed Embrace Kids Foundation, an impressive organization comprising parents of patients, working professionals, community leaders and college/high school students.
In 2007, Embrace Kids Foundation will provide over $1.2 million in services to children and families throughout the greater New Jersey area. The child patients range in age from infancy to young adulthood and encompass all ethnic and social backgrounds. Our family programs and support services are available at absolutely no cost to the family. We are committed to enhancing the quality of life and relieving emotional, spiritual and financial concerns.
Our support services include the David E. Zullo Pediatric Palliative Care (PACCT) Program, an Accredited Learning Center, Embrace Kids with Sickle Cell Initiative, a Financial Assistance Program and other Family Support Services. We also fund research at the Cancer Institute of New Jersey with the goal of improving treatment and searching for a cure.
