This year, R4K will be donating all money raised to Stand Up 2 Cancer, which funds and develops the newest and most innovative cancer treatments. From their website:
“SU2C dramatically accelerates the rate of new discoveries by connecting top scientists in unprecedented collaborations to create breakthroughs. SU2C innovations lead to better cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment, which means that we can help save lives now.”
We chose this charity because of their progressive work and their dedication to putting all funds raised directly into new and exciting research. While some charities only put a small percentage toward research, SU2C is at the forefront of finding a cure.
Previous events have benefitted the American Cancer Society, Buckets and Bows, My Hope Chest, and more!
