Has cancer made you feel powerless?
Do you wish you could do more to help cancer patients?
Then this is your chance! Please consider helping a great cause that will help 2 children with cancer.
This money will go to benefitting two children suffering from Sarcoma – a rare type of cancer.
Team Troublemakers, made up of Tommy, Trevor and their outstanding ground crew, will be racing 340-miles in a canoe down the Missouri River to raise money in aid of cancer patients.The race, called the MR 340, starts in Kansas City and goes all the way to St. Charles. We are asking that donors commit to paying a certain amount per mile. For example, $0.15 x 340 miles = $51. We will happily accept any level of donation, so if you can only donate $0.01 per mile, then great! But to up the ante, we have incentive structures that includes a sticker, t-shirt, poster, and/or mentioned in the video we will be putting together after the race.
The inspiration for this fundraiser comes from a sarcoma patient and close friend of Trevor, named Siegfried “Sig” Kohl.
Sig passed away last year after a brutal battle with Sarcoma, but his tenacity and courage transcended his time with us. A legendary man in more ways than one, Sig even raced in an Ironman triathlon and rarely missed a touch rugby session all while going through his chemotherapy treatments and suffering from neuropathy.
Sig maintained his sense of humor and his fight until the very end. He was a firm believer in what the Northwest Sarcoma Foundation stood for and for what it provided sarcoma patients. Following his death, he donated $30,000 for this charity to continue its fight. Lets honor him and those battling for their lives!

Hey, you deserve something for your generosity, that's why we made these great incentives:

Here’s some information about where your money is going:
The Northwest Sarcoma Foundation has two main goals: 1) End sarcoma and 2) Ensure that
nobody faces the disease alone. The foundation has three main channels for where the money is utilized:
1. Financial assistance – The foundation provides help directly to 160 families.
2. Research investments – There’s a laser focus on foundational sarcoma research.
Recipients include the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Children’s Cancer
Therapy Development Institute, and Oregon Health and Science University.
3. Outreach – “No one faces sarcoma alone.” This entails community building initiatives,
sarcoma meetups, patient gift bags, education, mentoring, and counseling.
$2,000 is enough to support two children battling sarcoma for a year. Please consider giving,
every little bit helps!
As with most non-profits, your donation is tax-deductible.
We are also grateful to our Troublemakers Race Sponsor:
