FUNDRAISE FOR KIDS FIGHTING CANCER
The Jessie Rees Foundation was inspired by 12 year old Jessie Rees during her courageous 10 month fight with two brain tumors (DIPG). Her heroic fight started on March 3, 2011 and ended on January 5, 2012 when she earned her angel wings.
During her courageous fight, Jessie decided to focus on helping other kids fighting cancer that couldn’t leave the hospital. This desire led to the creation of her fun-filled JoyJars® and Never Ever Give Up (aka: NEGU®) message.
Today, over 350,000 JoyJars have been sent to kids fighting cancer in all 50 states and over 40 countries. The sad news is, over 300,000 children are diagnosed with cancer every year and we are on a mission to spread JOY to all of them.
24 HOUR CHALLENGE
For the past 4 years, we have organized a 24 hour challenge to test ourselves physically, mentally, and emotionally while raising money for a great cause. For 24 hours, we devote ourselves to 2 goals: complete the 24 hour challenge, and make our fundraising goal to provide JoyJars to kids fighting cancer in hospitals and homes. Every year is a new challenge and this year, we are burning calories with air assault bikes.
Here’s where you come in… sign up and create your fundraising page. We are challenging you to engage your community and raise money for kids fighting cancer starting right now and continuing all the way through the 24 hour challenge. Rally your community to make a difference in the lives of kids fighting cancer and make a HUGE impact in this world. We can reach our goal because of YOU. Thank you in advance.
