I was typing up a Wade’s Army post when I ran across Crossfit Balboa’s (aka CFFB HQ) write up on it. They put how I feel better then I could have on my own.
I posted about Wade’s Wings on Monday however I thought it necessary to post again. I do not yet have children in this world, however, what I do know is that I could not ever imagine raising a child through the hardships of any sort of pediatric disease, let alone watching helplessly as your flesh and blood falls victim. Please let me refresh your memory and help us reach our goal for bringing both awareness and financial aid to those dealing with Neuroblastoma.
Let PAHQ tell you about both Wade and his fight.
“On November 12, 2011, a brave young boy, Wade DeBruin, lost his fight to the little known, yet most common pediatric cancer, Neuroblastoma. This is a cancer that forms in the Sympathetic Nervous System and is extremely difficult to treat. Neuroblastoma affects nearly twice as many babies as leukemia a year, yet there is little being done about the cancer. ”
Why is this charity so important to us. First, its simple these countless children need all the help they can get. Cancer research can only continue as long as there is support. Now why Wade’s Wings, this is simple. My boss and close friend’s wife, Kate grew up with Wade’s mother. As John and Kate welcomed their two beautiful young twin girls into this world Kate’s childhood friend was ushering her son into the heavens.
We have set up a team to utilize the CrossFit Balboan Community and infrastructure to join in the WADE’S ARMY cause, in order to change this and continue Wade’s fight and support his charity; Wade’s Wings.
On November 12, 2013 CrossFit Balboa will be participating in a workout to celebrate Wade’s life, and will be raising money to help fund research to put an end to Neuroblastoma and support the families affected. This is an incredibly unforgiving disease that no child or family should suffer though. Please support our campaign with WADE’S ARMY’s, and help us achieve our fundraising goal by November 12th. Please share with those around you.
Thank you in advance for your generosity! Every donation above $30 gets a commerotive t-shirt and beef jerky.
