This race generates funds for the Nikolas Ritschel Foundation (Nik's Wish) to help young adults in need. Make-A-Wish stops supporting after 17 years of age leaving young adults to fight alone. Nik believed that young adults need a wish too, so the night before cancer took his life, Nik's wish was for us to help. Our all volunteer charity has helped 182 cancer warriors in 32 states have a wish to create precious moments of joy. Sadly many who we help do not beat cancer, so these memories are priceless to the families. COVID has hit our fundraising activities hard and these 10 wishes are in need of funding. Learn more about this amazing group by clicking here.

Link to donate only:  

Many of us have been touched by cancer in some way. Perhaps one of the hardest words to hear is that your child has cancer. Young adults ages 18-24 have been forgotten in the cancer support network. Even Make-A-Wish end after 17.  Wishes BRING JOY & HOPE during a dark time.

Help us fund wishes for young adults like Jorge.
