Nick’s Fight to be Healed Foundation (NFTBHF) is proud to announce its 9th Annual Nick’s Run to be Healed 5K on Sunday, September 30, 2018 at the Clifton Commons in Clifton Park. Last year we raised $40,000 to help local children fight cancer! In 2017, Nick’s Fight granted over $100,000 to The Melodies Center at the Bernard & Millie Duker Children’s Hospital at Albany Med and to local families struggling to heal their children. This year we are proud to honor 7-year-old Ali Bawla, who was diagnosed with B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia on May 22, 2017, when he was 6. Ali will be in treatment for the next 3 years, ending in May 2020. Ali is an active first grade student in the North Colonie school district. Ali is one of approximately 90 children who are diagnosed every year just in our area.
NFTBHF was created in memory of my son, Nicholas Cammarata, who lost his battle to leukemia in October 2008. Our goal is to raise $50,000 through Nick's Run in 2018, to continue providing much needed services such as: financial assistance to families so parents can focus on their children's healing; funding the clinic's Child Life Specialist position; granting newly diagnosed families our Family Hope Bag filled with basic essentials for their hospital stay; and other programs that directly support children and reduce stress.
All we do is possible because of generous donors like you. As a sponsor, your business name will be seen by over 1,000 people, when you sponsor a certain run level!
