The math is simple, if we have 100 families or teams that raise on average $10,000, we will have the $1 million needed to jump start the gene therapy project on Schwanommas. Then, other investors, labs, or companies will jump in and fund it since we reduced the initial investment risk.

For US local events we have an amazing opportunity! Kohls employees volunteer for an eligible non-profit and for every employee that volunteers Kohls donates $25 for every hour that employee is at the event (for example: if two employees volunteer or participate in an event that lasts 2 hours, Kohls will donate $100… $25 an hour per person).
