With only energy, and the desire to do good, Eli’s Block Party Childhood Cancer Foundation was formed with the mission of supporting innovative research. Family and friends in the community responded generously to the Foundation and joined in. The organization intends to raise funds for childhood cancer, mostly seeking out doctors and labs that research innovative treatment for childhood brain cancer.
To raise funds, it gives back to its community by hosting family fun events that focus on childhood cancer and raising awareness. These events encourage others to join in the fight by participating in the event or by hosting their own Eli’s Block Party car show or cruise-in. Friends in Flat Rock, Michigan, host a cruise-in to raise money and the Limestone County Mustang Club hosts a charity show to benefit the foundation.
We also host family-fun events in our community to raise awareness and funds for childhood cancer research, specifically pediatric brain cancer. In memory of Eli, we host car shows, and in honor of all childhood cancer fighters, we host Superhero Fun Day as an awareness event for September, childhood cancer month. Throughout the year, we are involved with other fundraising events and activities as the opportunity arises.
Thirdly, we support and encourage cancer families, starting with local families, and then reaching out to families enduring treatment. The organization engages the charitable hearts of community clubs, schools, church groups, and individuals by offering various levels of opportunities to participate, and be a part of its mission.
