Since the Foundation began in January of 2008 over $185,000 has been raised to sponsor an Endowment Chair with the University of Minnesota, Isaac's HOPE Fund for Curing Childhood Cancer. Isaac's Foundation has reached a level of support with the U of M where our research dollars have been distributed upon much needed programs overseen by our Medical Advisory Committee, Pediatric Hematologist Oncologist Drs. Joseph Neglia and Brenda Weigel.


Last year, the U of M made progress in many priority areas in pediatric cancer research and Isaac’s Foundation is a valued partner in this work. We’d like to highlight two areas in particular that the University of Minnesota.






























At the end of each year we gather our Team together to give a gift of monetary support to the U of M.ALL of our funds raised are committed to the advancement and Cure of Childhood Cancer Research.

HOPE RUN

July 19, 2014

West Union Park, West Union, MN


Join our 7th Annual HOPE Run/5K to raise funds for Childhood Cancer Research. Starting out in the West Union Park you can either go right on the trail (walk/run ONLY) to join in our 5K event or you can bike/walk/run and go left on the trail up to 8 miles and receive your FREE ice cream cone sponsored by the Tip Top Dairy Bar in Osakis, MN! Through out the trail about every 1-1 ½ miles there will be sponsored checkpoints offering a light snack and a drink. At various stops you will meet and greet a child/family that has battled a cancer journey. Weather permitting there will be various activities in the park for everyone to enjoy. The HOPE Run/5K will end back in the West Union Park concluding the Award Ceremony at 12 Noon.
