Almost Race Time!


                                                                                                   
                                                        

Dear Family and Friends,
The I Care I Cure Foundation was founded by our sister and brother-in-law, Beth and Brad Besner (along with their friends and family) in honor of our nephew, Ian, who was diagnosed with T-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) in January, 2006, one week before his 11th birthday. Ian was an extraordinary boy who shared his joy and love of life with everyone who met him. Sadly, Ian lost his battle with cancer just four months after his diagnosis suffering during that time the ravages of chemotherapies that were supposed to save his life. 
The I Care I Cure Foundation supports the development of, and raises public awareness about, cutting-edge, targeted therapies for childhood cancer, so that the treatment of childhood cancer will be gentler and more tolerable. By educating the public about scientific breakthroughs in genetic childhood cancer research that are within reach but seriously underfunded, the foundation hopes to quickly raise money to fund research grants and provide seed money to researchers for new studies. 

By sharing with you how close the medical community is to more humane treatment for childhood cancer, we hope that you will want to be part of the effort to fund this ground breaking research so that fewer and fewer children have to suffer as Ian did.

Our family and friends will be participating in the 7th Annual I Care I Cure I Run 5K, Color Run and Family Fun Day in Sunrise, Florida on Sunday, February 9, 2014 which is just a few days after, what would have been, Ian's 19th birthday.   If you will be in Florida at that time, please join our team to walk or run for this important cause. Just let us know that you are interested and we will email you all of the registration details!   If you can't join us for the race, please consider making a donation to this cause that is so very important to our family.
To donate, just go to this website:


Thank you so very much for your continued support!
Lynn and Glenn

End - to - Ender!



Glenn was recognized in the East Coast Greenway 
E-News Newsletter today!


Here is a copy of the article!





Congratulations to Recent ECG End-to-End Riders!
In the past few months, two people have completed bicycle tours of the ECG! Kudos and congratulations to Bob and Glenn!
Dr. Glenn Hirsch of Georgia biked the ECG a section at a time from south to north. He started on November 7, 2009 in Key West and finished on August 12, 2013 in Calais, ME. Glenn rode to raise awareness and funds for I Care I Cure Childhood Cancer Foundation, in memory of his nephew, Ian, who lost his battle with leukemia at age eleven.
His wife, Lynn, also went the whole way providing SAG support and did a blog about Glenn's tour and their other activities to support the childhood cancer foundation.
Glenn Hirsch
A number of family members joined Glenn for the last day of his ride, which was also his and Lynn's 40th wedding anniversary (double congratulations)! Read their sweet blog entry about the end of the ride and see photos here.

Bob Spiegelman of New Hampshire biked the entire ECG between August 2011 and August 2013 (and he rode a couple sections more than once!). He rode with our Week a Year Tour each summer since 2011, covering the sections from the Canadian border to Philadelphia, PA, and in 2012 Bob rode with the Cabot tour from Miami to Portland, ME.
Earlier this year Bob made a trip south to ride the Florida Keys section, and a short stretch in North Carolina that the Cabot tour had to miss due to a tropical storm. Bob raised funds for the ECG during the Cabot and Week a Year tours, raising over $10,000 in the past two years!
Congratulations Glenn, Lynn, and Bob! We are so glad to have you as End-to-Enders!

September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month








Please help I Care I Cure fund research for gentler and 
more humane treatments for childhood cancers!







Gold is the new Pink!  

Gold: The New Pink exists, not to take away from the efforts that have been made to advance 
the cause of breast cancer awareness or to suggest that breast cancer awareness is not as important, 
but rather to elevate the cause of childhood cancer to equal stature.

Raising public awareness about childhood cancer and encouraging people 
to move from awareness to action!

Family "Fun" Raising!



After 13 days in Maine, we arrived home on Saturday night.
We had an exhausting, exhilarating, emotional, exciting, excellent adventure!

Before we even left Maine, our grandsons decided that they wanted to
have a Lemonade Stand to raise funds for I Care I Cure when we 
returned to Georgia so the planning began and we put all of the
plans into action today...with TWO Lemonade Stands!







We started at 10:30 this morning at Glenn's office with our first
Lemonade Stand.  Benji, Evan, Miles and Fletcher charmed the
staff and patients with their salesmanship and pouring skills!



We're all set and ready to serve up Lemonade, Iced Tea and Cookies! 





Benji, Evan and Miles getting ready for the crowd to arrive!





Benji was the lead salesman and explained to our customers what we
were doing and why I Care I Cure is so important to our family.
   





Benji and Fletcher take a break from the action





Sara, Evan and Miles say " Lemonade Stand" to smile for the camera.





Evan and Miles taste testing the cookies.....
They approve!





Pouring the drinks for the customers was fun for all.
Miles caught on quickly!





Evan took charge of the Iced Tea pouring here





Now a taste test of the lemonade by Evan :)





Miles makes sure that the lemonade is good enough to serve!





Pa, with Fletcher, takes a break from
work to watch the boys in action!







After 4 1/2 hours of serving and explaining I Care I Cure,
Benji and Evan took a technology break! 





Benji serves some friendly customers :)




We left the office at 1:40 and had plenty of lemonade, iced tea 
and cookies left so we invited friends and neighbors in our
condo building to stop by from 4-6 for the Benji and Evan
Lemonade Stand Part 2!



New venue, same yummy treats!





Evan and Benji....Service with a smile!





Evan is STILL doing "quality control" on our products





Benji preferred the Green Tea with Honey and Ginger






It's all about the presentation!




A little lemonade stand turned into two events today and a very
impressive "FUN" raising total of $500.00.

Thanks to Benji for the idea and to Evan, Miles, Fletcher and
Sara for helping to make it happen today!

A big thanks to all of the wonderful people who were so
sweet, patient and generous while visiting our Lemonade
Stands....some even just made a donation without taking 
a drink or a cookie.   They just wanted to help support the cause!







It's not too late to donate!
We are slowly edging toward our goal of $10,000 for this 
last segment of the ride.   I'll check on our total next week and 
do one more post to let you know how we are doing.
As always, thanks for your support and encouragement!
