Welcome to Welker Racing Enterprises' PCRF-Kids Donation Page
Thank you for your interest in supporting Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation (PCRF)! The Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation (PCRF) mobilizes philanthropic support to benefit and advance funding research that leads to curing childhood cancers. Friends like you make it possible for PCRF to to reach our goal to cure childhood cancer.
Our race team knows several families who have either lost a child, have children receiving treatment with an uncertain future, or children who are now survivors. One such person is Caitlin, who you see in the picture to the left. Caitlin was first diagnosed at the age of 4 and fought for almost 5 years beforeher cancer morphed into Glioblastoma Multiforme, one of the deadliest brain tumors. During her treatment Caitlin, though grants like those created by PCRF and other organizations, was able to receive an experimental drug, but it was ineffective. It is our experience with families like Caitlin's that have motivated us to get involved with PCRF and start to develop our charitable platform.
It is estimated that nearly 16,000 new cases of cancer would be diagnosed among children 19 years of age and younger in the US. Although pediatric cancer death rates have declined by more than 50 percent during the past five decades, cancer remains the leading cause of death from disease among children and adolescents. Clearly, better and safer treatments for childhood cancers are needed. Childhood cancer research is severely under-funded, and we thank you for visiting this page and donating to help directly fund research into childhood specific cancers.
September is Childhood Chancer Awareness month and we will be holidng our major fundraising push during that month to coincide with the busy part of our racing season and the most presitgous race on the NHRA tour, the US Nationals. Although you can donate at any time, during the month of September, we will be actively marketing our PCRF fundraising campaign and many of our sponsors will be providing support in the form of prodcut give-aways, certificates, etc. that we will be distributing to contributors during the month of September.
More details on our September Fundraising Drive are to come and will released here and on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/welkerracing
