Our 2nd Annual Holiday Challenge brings together people of all fitness levels to push their physical limits while raising awareness and funds for families struggling with the financial burden of cancer.
A New Yorker, crafter, athlete, gardner, mom and wife, Becky has a full schedule. But when Amanda Bruneau, her close friend and Community Engagement Manager at Family Reach, told her about our Napa Valley half marathon, she knew it was an opportunity she couldn't pass up.
It takes a community of engaged advocates, partners and supporters to reach all of the cancer-fighting families that need our help. That’s why we’re excited to introduce Resilience Gives, a sock-based fundraising platform, to the Family Reach network. Together, we will help more families combat the cost of cancer.
We are so excited to support a new group of Reach Athletes as they prepare for the Napa-to-Sonoma Wine Country Half Marathon this summer! We have members from all corners of our community coming together - staff, families we’ve assisted, board members, friends and supporters - and our hearts are filled with gratitude.
On Monday April 16, Rusty Bilodeau will be running in our country’s most historic marathon, the Boston Marathon. This will be his second time running on behalf of Family Reach to raise money for families battling cancer. To help inspire our Reach Athletes during their training, we match them with one of our cancer-fighting heroes! It’s one of the many ways we love making donor - patient connections. Rusty is proudly running in honor of 15-year-old Camille, who has been fighting osteosarcoma, bone cancer, since she was 10 years old.
Reach Athletes are a force to be reckoned with. They push limits. They raise the bar to new heights. "Quit" is not in their vocabulary. Why? Because they know they have the power to cross that finish line and together make a real, tangible difference in the lives of families battling cancer.
On Monday, November 6, we broke all of our fundraising records, earning more than $700,000 to help families fighting cancer at this year’s Cooking Live! New York! Created by celebrity chef Ming Tsai, the fundraiser brought Worst Cooks in America’s Anne Burrell, Chopped’s Amanda Freitag and The Chew’s Carla Hall together to prepare a five-course meal live in the center of the Ritz-Carlton New York, Battery Park ballroom.
