Everybody knows someone battling cancer: almost two million Americans are currently faced with the disease. But as pervasive as it is, the effects of cancer are unspeakably personal.
That is why we invest in Go4TheGoal. Go4TheGoal was founded in 2006 by Dr. Richard and Beth Stefanacci—a New Jersey couple whose son was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer. The purpose of the foundation is to provide financial and emotional support to families and their children, as they undergo cancer treatment.
Organizations like this are lifeboats for people coping with the disease, and Go4TheGoal has been an incredible fundraiser: dedicating money to granting wishes to children in treatment and raising more than $500k for innovative pediatric cancer research.
Go4TheGoal’s Benzel-Busch-sponsored Richard's Run® 5K is one of the organization’s greatest annual fundraisers. And this year marks the 10th Anniversary of the run, which will take place on Sunday, October 6th in Ho-Ho-Kus, New Jersey.
Benzel-Busch will lead the way (for both runners and walkers!) on race day in an electric drive smart pace car. We will also have our 2014 CLA model onsite, for those interested in what 2014 will bring for Mercedes aficionados.
Register for the race today, or anytime before October 5th, for $25—or register on race day for $30.
