Founded as Leukemia, Research, Life (LRL) in 1981 and renamed Kids Without Cancer in 2011, this remarkable organization has, for thirty years, been raising money to fund the pediatric cancer research being done at Children’s Hospital of Michigan and its affiliates Wayne State University and the Karmanos Cancer Institute. In fact, this organization is proud to be the largest contributor of funds to pediatric cancer research at Children’s Hospital of all charities solely dedicated to funding cancer research. http://www.kidswithoutcancer.org/

The sold-out event featuring nearly 300 participants, the 18th annual edition of Play It Foreward was highly successful, with the fundraising total for Downtown Boxing Gym and Kids Without Cancer besting the 2016 event total of just over $135,000, as well as all previous Play It Foreward outings. Both of this year’s beneficiaries serve Detroit’s youth population: Downtown Boxing Gym’s Youth Program encourages “books before boxing” and empowers Detroit youth to be positive and productive members of society through education, athletics, mentoring and intervention. Kids Without Cancer strives to eradicate childhood cancer by funding the cutting-edge research being done at Children’s Hospital of Michigan, together with its affiliates Wayne State University and the Karmanos Cancer Institute.

Sachse continues to push the status quo of a traditional construction company by making a significant impact in our local community through a plethora of different fundraisers and philanthropic initiatives.
