In 2002, when 16-year-old Sarah Szafranski realized she was losing her three-year battle with cancer, she resolved to make a permanent contribution to the fight against pediatric cancer. She decided to create a self-sustaining endowment fund for research on pediatric cancer. She charged her father, Bob Szafranski, with starting the Sarah Szafranski Endowment Fund and growing it to $1 million. Bob, along with his friends and colleagues in the Central Florida construction industry, created Sarah’s Sporting Clays Against Cancer to fundraise for the endowment.
Having completed that goal in 2020, Bob guided the next phase of Sarah’s Clays – to invest in the most innovative cancer research in the country – through a partnership with Cannonball Kids’ cancer Foundation (CKc). With the help of the dedicated volunteer committee members, Sarah’s Clays funded a Young Investigator Grant for Dr. Joelle Straehla at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in 2021. In 2022, Sarah’s Clays funded a Young Investigator grant for Dr. Jennifer Kamens at Stanford University.
