5K FUN RUN CHARITY
Griffin's Guardians is the 2022 Charity
Helping brave little heroes today and providing HOPE for tomorrow!
A Note from Mom
As the mom of a son fighting cancer, I have learned a lot. I learned that my little boy was stronger than most adults. I learned that his zest for life could not be taken by the cancer, and I learned that his Never Give Up attitude was going to carry me through his 15 month battle.
But I was also shocked to learn was how little funding is allocated to Pediatric Cancer Research.
We asked Griffin to fight the biggest battle of his life, knowing in the back of our mind there were not a lot of options when his GBM returned. We, as parents, were left with no other options to save our son. Parents need options, families need options -- our children need options! That will never happen without more research. Someone said to me, "GBM in children isn't rare anymore, it's just under-researched!" This is our chance to change that.
These children are OUR FUTURE! Not just the future of our local community, but for our nation as a whole. I believe as a nation, we have let these children down. Is it uncomfortable to talk about children getting cancer, yes, but how much more uncomfortable is it talking about children dying from cancer? We need to bring change for these children and their families. Be that change! We can do it through this organization. If we take our cues for courage and determination from Griffin and the other brave little heroes battling cancer, there is no way we won’t make a difference.
I believe through Griffin's Guardians we will make a difference. As mothers, fathers, grandparents, and friends, we ask that you stand up for the children. Stand up for their right to live long healthy lives. And when something interferes with that, we as a community -- we as a nation -- stand by these children with confidence that we have provided them with every possibility to beat their cancer.
Vino and the Beasts Charity Partners
Vino and the Beasts feels it is very important to give back to the community that we have one of our Vino and The Beasts events in. The event is about letting loose, fitness and health, and having a blast. If we can find a way to give back at the same time, then it is a win win for everyone!
Vino and the Beasts and our fellow Beasts have been responsible for donating over $20,000 to local and regional charities through proceeds from our 5K fun run. We are excited to be able to give back something at each event but we are committed to doing more! A Charity will be selected for each 5K fun run we do and will benefit from parking proceeds, donations, and other opportunities.
