The Turning Point in Cherry Hill to host fundraiser for Kortney Rose Foundation

The fundraiser will take place on Feb. 23 and Feb. 24.

The Kortney Rose Foundation is partnering with The Turning Point in Cherry Hill for its 10th annual Great Food for a Great Cause fundraiser to support pediatric brain tumor research initiatives.

The fundraiser will be taking place at the Cherry Hill Turning Point location on Feb. 23 and Feb. 24 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The campaign will raise funds for research and treatment of pediatric brain tumors, the leading cause of death by disease in children. The Kortney Rose Foundation is a 501c3 charity with the mission of eradicating pediatric brain tumors by funding the world’s most promising, collaborative research. KRF funding supports collaborative research through the 16 worldwide research institutions, who work collaboratively through the Children’s Brain Tumor Tissue Consortium, supports Neuro-Oncology Program growth at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and is a primary funder of the Open DIPG Program, the largest project ever done on the deadliest form of pediatric brain cancer, Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma. Over the next two years the foundation will also be funding a project that is taking the science involved in the first immunotherapy cure for one type of pediatric leukemia and studying it in brain tumors.
