The Fast and The Fouriers (running as "The Fast and The Fouriers" and "10 Fast 10 Fouriers" [pronounced "2 Fast 8 Fouriers"]) are teaming up for Ragnar Trail Vermont in July 2020, a 120-ism mile relay, to raise funds for Cookies for Kids' Cancer.
Cookies for Kids' Cancer, a national 501(c)3 non-profit, is committed to raising funds for research to develop new, improved treatments for pediatric cancer, the #1 disease killer of children in the U.S.
As of October 2017, nearly $15 Million in grants have gone to support the research of our partner centers for new therapies and treatments for childhood cancers, the leading disease killer of children in the US. Since our inception in 2008, Cookies for Kids’ Cancer has funded 100 childhood cancer research grants, resulting in 37 promising new treatments in clinical trial, available to children TODAY.
Childhood cancer gets less than 4% of the federal budget for cancer research. Children's developing bodies need specialized, non toxic treatments that can kill cancer cells without causing life limiting and long lasting side effects. When children do survive cancer, 2 out of 3 times, they have to live with severe side effects including loss of cognitive abilities, loss of executive function, loss of limbs, and secondary cancers.
