StartLine Racing Supports Arizona Families Battling Pediatric Cancer

Dunk Your Kicks ArizonaThe Max Cure Foundation, a non-profit pediatric cancer foundation, is excited to announce that StartLine Racing, an Arizona Race Event company, has joined our ‘Roar’ to help support the Arizona Roar Beyond Barriers program. StartLine Racing was created to give every runner the best possible Race Day experience every time, while supporting different philanthropic causes and now you can Dunk Your Kicks for pediatric cancer causes at any participating StartLine Racing event.

Donate your kicks (sneakers) after the races and let others less fortunate “walk a mile in your shoes.” By donating your sneakers after the races and making them part of the affordable clothing market in emerging market countries, you are helping the environment by keeping them out of landfills, offering individuals in developing nations the opportunity to have sneakers at affordable prices, while, through the Max Cure Foundation Roar Beyond Barrier Program, providing financial support to local low-income families who have children battling pediatric cancers.

StartLine Racing has chosen The Max Cure Foundation as its featured charity for the “Going the Distance Marathon / Half Marathon” at Rio Vista Park in Peoria on April 19th. In addition, It is planning a Dunk Your Kicks 5k / 10k event in September 2014, which is Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month, which will benefit the foundation’s  Arizona Roar Beyond Barriers program.

Who Will This Support

The Max Cure Foundation currently has two families in the Arizona Roar Beyond Barriers program being treated at Phoenix Children’s Hospital. Buddy, age 6, and Maurice, age 9, are both battling forms of brain cancer and come from single parent homes. With the monies raised, the Max Cure Foundation will provide these families, and hopefully others in Arizona, with monthly Target gift cards during the time the children are in active cancer treatment to purchase necessities such as food and clothing.  Thanks to Startline Racing and its support of the Dunk Your Kicks Campaign, the foundation is hopeful it will be able to add to the program additional Arizona families facing a parent’s worst nightmare, a child with cancer.

We want to extend a Roaring Thank You to our newest Dunk Your Kicks ambassadors in Arizona, Jaime Chisholm and Ginny Corsbie who introduced The Max Cure Foundation to StartLine Racing and began this tremendous adventure. They are also organizing the Dunk Your Kicks 5k / 10k race in September, referenced above, to raise awareness and money for pediatric cancer causes.

See below for a complete list of StartLine Racing’s upcoming events where you can Dunk Your Kicks for pediatric cancer causes. Together we will Roar for a Cure until one is found.
