Our event will raise funds for pediatric cancer patients and their families. We are working towards our dream project of building individual housing units in Philadelphia, near CHOP. NixCancer Foundation has partnered with Bryn Mawr Racing Company to bring you an event that will honor the life of Nicholas Mincarelli while supporting families fighting cancer. This year we will have a special honored hero. Her name is Margo, she is five years old, and was diagnosed in early May with a Wilm's Tumor. She had surgery in May but the couldn't remove all of it, because it was fused to her liver, kidneys, and abdominal wall.  A portion of the event will go directly to Margo and her family. For more information about NixCancer Foundation and Margo, our honored hero, please visit  www.nixcancerfoundation.org
