EPIC Carts supports TeamConnor Cancer Foundation – Charity Event and Golf Tournament
EPIC Carts supports TeamConnor – Connor Cruse was a rambunctious four-year-old boy who loved Bob the Builder, Power Rangers, swimming, fighting with light sabers, toy guns, sticks, and anything else he could get his hands on. In other words, Connor was just a normal little boy when he was diagnosed with Stage IV neuroblastoma on May 15, 2005. The prognosis was bleak.
Even as Connor fought for his life, his parent’s Joy and Tait Cruse were touched by how cancer affected other families they came in contact with during Connor’s treatments. They saw the emotional and financial toll childhood cancer took on families. Joy and Tait promised Connor they would do everything they could to keep other children from having to go through what Connor faced.
The Cruse family established the TeamConnor Cancer Foundation in 2007 to help fund childhood cancer research. After all, cancer kills more children each year than cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy, asthma, and AIDS combined; yet, the National Cancer Institute allocates only three percent of its budget to pediatric cancer.
Connor lost his four-year battle with cancer on July 10, 2009; but, TeamConnor continues to fight on in honor of Connor Cruse.
Last weekend, EPIC Carts was proud to support TeamConnor at the 11th Annual III Forks Golf Classic and Auction Dinner. The charity has raised millions of dollars and the May 1st dinner and auction and May 2nd golf tournament was no exception. We are proud partner with TeamConnor and join this fight against childhood cancer. EPIC Cares!
