Riding for a Cure

16 May

Since 1984, Ride for Kids® has been helping laboratories worldwide take steps toward new and more innovative treatments for young patients with brain tumors. The program has grown to the point where the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation® (PBTF), is the official charity of the Honda Riders Club of America. Thanks to the generous support of Honda and other motorcycle industry companies, the program has raised more than $50 million for pediatric brain tumor research.

As the world’s largest non-governmental source of funding for childhood brain tumor research, the P.B.T.F is dedicated to not only eradicating this disease, but to provide support to families like Miriam. Their educational resources deliver comfort and hope to families in need of information, and their college scholarship program gives brain tumor survivors a boost for the future.

“Fundraising with Popcorn Palace is super easy and convenient.  We are out at events during the day at our booth promoting our charity and having the snack size bags for sale. People are hungry and there isn’t always food available for a quick, tasty and healthy snack. The response has been very positive. I love the way the bags are packed all ready to go!”

October’s "Pictures are Worth a Thou$and Dollars" Winner: Fairmont Music

7 Nov
Stacey Barta was hired in 2006 to develop a competitive music program for Fairmont Preparatory Academy. During her tenure, she started a concert band, concert choir, show choir, pep band, musical theater and a faculty dance team.
Despite being only 6 years old, the program has competed and earned many personal awards-1st place trophies, national rankings of gold and silver, and many other top honors. The program is extremely diverse with students from the United States, India, Thailand, Vietnam, Korea, and China. Invitations have taken the team to places such as San Francisco, New York, Hawaii and now London.
The organization is working aggressively towards the goal of raising $180,000 this year so they can perform at the London Festival of Music in April 2012. This is an inaugural event and they are hoping to upgrade their status from “National Champions” to “International Champions.”
“Our biggest challenge every year is money. We do not receive financial support from our school beyond classroom necessities, so it is up to the students to raise money for their uniforms and competition costs which costs from $1,500 to $3,000 each year depending on where we are going for competition,” says Stacey.
“We raise a large portion of our funds from aggressive fundraising throughout the year. With so many challenges on an annual basis such as lack of instrumentation, lack of funding, and being a small program, I teach my students the most important thing of all for success – No Excuses!”
