At Cool Events we are committed to giving back to our community. We dedicate our races to children. We are faithful to children and families, understanding that 1 in 3 families are rocked by childhood cancer, terminal illnesses every day. We work with Children’s Miracle Network, with a passion and drive to support our very own neighborhood leader Phoenix Children’s Hospital, here in our hometown of Phoenix AZ.
Why Phoenix Children’s Hospital? Our own family was rocked to its core when our daughter was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia when she was just 4 years old. At the onset of her treatment, a family friend encouraged us to transfer her care to PCH. Within days of exceptional care at PCH, they had discovered our daughter was misdiagnosed and was, in fact, cancer free. PCH investigated the issue deeper to discover the diagnosing doctor misdiagnosed 7 other children. PCH not only saved my daughter’s life but they took their passion for children beyond their hospital walls to save 7 other families. Our family will always be deeply indebted to PCH for their love, compassion, educated doctors, staff, and giving our family and daughter HOPE.
We dedicate our races to Childhood Cancer Awareness and make sure we are working to spread the word around the nation one runner, once race at a time.
