The Friends of Colin is a nonprofit organization committed to working towards a cure for Ewing sarcoma pediatric bone cancer. Fighting cancer contains two main components: awareness and fundraising. Awareness is accomplished through events and media that spread information on Ewing sarcoma. Hopefully, by telling others of the dangers of Ewing sarcoma and the underfundedness of its research, we can increase support for our cause.
At the same time, we directly support Ewing sarcoma research through fundraising garnered from events, sales, and donations. The money we raise is then given to research hospitals that we believe merit the donation. Our main goal is that with this combination we will significantly assist in the discovery of a cure for Ewing sarcoma.
The Friends pose with the Easter Bunny at the 2012 Easter Egg Hunt, an event designed to promote both awareness and fundraising.
