Go4TheGoal is an organization dedicated to bringing pride into the lives of all children and parents involved. We are a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization that provides financial support, developing and implementing unique hospital programs, funding innovative research, and granting personal wishes.
Go4theGoal was founded in 2006 only weeks after Richard Stefanacci was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma, a rare bone cancer. After a yearlong battle, Richard lost his fight with cancer. Although Richard lost his battle, Go4theGoal’s determination to continue their mission did not fade and was only strengthened when his cousin Blake was diagnosed with another rare cancer, Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma, on March 11, 2010. Blake bravely fought her cancer and is now a 4-year survivor!
Their mission is to improve the lives of children battling cancer by providing financial support, developing and implementing unique hospital programs, funding innovative research, and granting personal wishes. They run a variety of fundraisers and programs like Kart 4 Kids and Lace Up 4 Pediatric Cancer.
In December 2016, they unveiled their renovation of the infusion clinic at St Christopher's Hospital for Children, which included a reception/waiting area, the infusion clinic itself, and an area restricted just for their teen population! Through their first hand experience with pediatric cancer and their medical background, Go4theGoal provides the best practices to patients, their families, and the hospitals and staff that care for them.
