Findlay Rotary Presents Check To Braden Kramer Foundation

The Findlay Rotary Club has presented a $10,300 check to the Braden Kramer Foundation.

The funds were raised during the rotary’s inaugural 5K “Beer Chase” event held on November 6th in downtown Findlay.

The 5K and Kids Dash began and finished at the Findlay Brewing Company.

5K participants “chased” Club President Matt Black who was appropriately dressed as a can of beer. (pic below)

The Braden Kramer Foundation was established in 2016 to assist families fighting childhood cancer.

In 2015, Braden Kramer was diagnosed with t-cell all (acute lymphoblastic leukemia).

Braden’s family quickly recognized the challenges and heartache that accompany a childhood cancer diagnosis.

The initial months seemed like a tornado of medical terms to be learned, reports to be read and lifestyle changes that the family needed to adapt to in order to provide the best environment for Braden.

Through these experiences, the family felt compelled to help other families that would benefit from the type of community support they were so fortunate to have.

To date, the foundation has supported 25 children in Hancock and Putnam counties and donated over $300,000.
