Uncle Glenn's Ride Highlighted in the ICIC Summer Newsletter!

We are very proud to be included in the Summer 2012 Newsletter so that the many, many 
I Care I Cure supporters will be made aware of what we are doing.  What started out as a 
little bike ride has turned into a great adventure for an amazing cause.   

Please see the posting below this one to check out when and where I Care I Cure I Cycle 
heads next!   Join us on the road if you can!

We are also looking for a sponsor to defray the cost of the shirts that we enjoy giving to
supporters along the way and for the cycling jerseys for those who donate and ride with Glenn.  
Let us know if you have any suggestions on how to accomplish this or whom to contact.  Thanks!

The mission of
I Care I Cure Childhood Cancer Foundation is to fund research to find gentler and more targeted therapies for children with cancer.


Project Collaborate

Co-founder Beth Besner and our president,
Beth-Ann Krimsky attended, and helped chair, a national collaboration project for childhood cancer foundations in Washington, D.C. on June 3, 2012.

One of the goals of this collaboration is to make sure precious resources are used in the most effective manner possible. We seek to avoid duplicating efforts so we can help children with cancer and their families faster.

Beth Besner is serving on the strategic planning sub-committee and Beth-Ann Krimsky is chairing the childhood cancer statistics sub-committee for the national group. I Care I Cure's involvement keeps us connected to the pulse of planning and research being conducted throughout the country and within our mission.

2012 I Care I Cure...I Run Race Helps Fund More Research

We are proud to announce that with your incredible support, and that of our generous sponsors, I Care I Cure Childhood Cancer Foundation collected over $185,000 at our 5th Annual I Care I Cure...I Run 5K and Family Fun Day.
The net proceeds for this event will once again go to fund research grants to find gentler and more targeted therapies for children with cancer. Thank you so much! We look forward to seeing you on February 10, 2013 to do it all over again!
