The Andy Niebler Foundation is excited to announce that it has made a donation of $55,000 to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin to establish the Andy Niebler Brain Tumor Research Fund. This fund will be used to help attract the best and brightest neuro-oncologists in the country to initiate cutting-edge research and clinical trials locally to find more effective treatments for children with brain tumors.
Brain tumors are the second most common cancer found in children, accounting for 25–30% of all childhood cancers. These types of cancers pose some of the greatest challenges for treatment and long-term survival underscoring the reason why funding for more clinical trials is critical.
Thank you to all of our sponsors, volunteers, basketball players, donators and everyone that has helped make this possible. We are excited about this strong start and are looking forward to seeing this continue to grow.
We are very thankful to Center Court for their generosity in providing, for the third year in a row, their great facility for our 3on3 for Niebs basketball tournament. While at this year’s event, make sure to say thanks by purchasing lunch and a sports drink from their cafe. Thank you Center Court for helping us fight childhood cancer one hoop at a time!
Get your team together, we are ready to play! Registration is now open for the 2013 version of 3 on 3 for Niebs basketball tournament. Help us battle childhood cancer by raising awareness and funds for research. Click Here to Register
Thank you to everyone that helped us raise $24,000 in 2012 for the following charities: MACC Fund, Make-A-Wish, CaringBridge and Children’s Oncology Services, Inc.
In 2013, our focus will be on the severely underfunded childhood cancer research.
Our event will have, of course, the basketball tournament, as well as silent auction, entertainment, and family fun. Stay tuned for more information. We will also be opening team registrations soon.
