Quarterly Fundraising

We have begun to focus our efforts on a General Fundraiser for each quarter of the year.

  • Our 2017 1st Quarter fundraiser was the Cash Donation Boxes – We now have approximately 40 cash donation boxes around the U.S. and United Kingdom. If you know a business or business owner who would put a box in their store, please send us a message on our Contact us page.

  • Our 2017 2nd Quarter Fundraiser (April – June) is a Cure GM1 Spring Clean Yard sale or Lemonade stand Fundraiser! This is a great and pretty easy way to help the Foundation. Please let us know if you plan to benefit children with GM1 by doing a yard sale or lemonade stand in your area and we’ll add it to our events calendar!

  • 2017 3rd Quarter Campaign (July – Sept.) will be a Cure GM1 Walk/Ride/Run – Stay tuned for information on this virtual walk/run coming soon during 3rd Quarter!

Funds raised in the 1st Quarter of 2017

We had a BIG first quarter. Thank you to everyone who has worked so hard to Fundraise! You have truly donated your time and efforts to help bring a cure to these sweet, amazing children!
