“I want to do something that will help people forever. I want to find a cure for cancer.” – Sarah Szafranski

Our Inspiration

Sarah’s Sporting Clays Against Cancer was created as a unique event to raise funds for pediatric oncology through the Sarah Szafranski Endowment Fund. 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. 

We deeply appreciate all you have done in the past to support the fight against pediatric cancer in memory of Sarah Szafranski, the 16-year-old who had a vision of how she could continue her battle against cancer into a future she would never see. We hope you will continue to support this fight. 

Generous donations made to the Sarah Szafranski Endowment Fund have been invested each year into organizations which are actively fighting pediatric cancer. Since the first event in 2014, our participants have collectively raised over $250,000, which has gone directly into the Sarah Szafranski Endowment Fund. This year, the proceeds from our event will go to Cannonball Kids’ cancer Foundation in support of innovative cancer research including Dr. Amy Smith’s work at Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children.

Funding Innovative Research

To fight cancer, you have to get creative. Standard cancer treatments were developed for adults and dosed down for children. As a result, 95% kids lucky enough to survive cancer will suffer devastating side-effects. Cannonball Kids’ cancer Foundation only funds the most innovative, out-of-the-box, pediatric cancer research to not only increase survivorship, but improve the quality of life for kids fighting cancer.
