PLEASE HELP US FUND RAISE FOR BRAIN CANCER RESEARCH

520 people each day, 21 people each hour are diagnosed with a brain tumor. There is no cure for brain cancer.
Only with research will that change. Our fundraising DIRECTLY benefits research, and stays LOCAL benefiting Florida Hospital.

Our goal is to raise $55,000 for brain cancer research!

Fund raise as an Individual and a Team Involve your neighbors!  Your company!  Your church!  Your civic organization!   Funds benefit Florida Hospital

This event is in memory of Melissa Vosburg – daughter, sister, dear friend and teacher – a bright, beautiful, engaging and happy 35 year old; vibrant, happy and full of life. Melissa was a resident of Sanford and taught at Midway School. Melissa's goal was to become the "Susan G. Komen’ of brain cancer.

As an added incentive, your fundraising will enter you for a chance to win valuable prizes provided by our sponsors.  The more you raise, the better your odds! 

Individual fundraiser prizes:

Everyone raising at least $100 will have their name entered on 5 chances to win the prizes. For each additional $50 raised, another 3 chances are added. There is no max on the number of chances.

On race day, a live drawing will be held to select the winners. You need not be present to win, so virtual fundraisers are eligible too.  All chances will be deposited and thoroughly mixed. A volunteer from the audience will select the winners. Fundraisers are only eligible for a single prize so if a subsequent selection happens to be the same individual as a previous selection, another name will be drawn.
