3rd Annual Dodge Ball Tournament For The Eli Seth Matthews Leukemia Foundation At WCU

This event is the third annual fundraiser for the Eli Seth Matthews Leukemia Foundation that I have put together! :)
It is hosted with the help of West Chester University’s pre-medical club and will be held on campus at the Ehinger Gym on Friday, April 24, 2015 at 6 pm.
Teams with 5-8 people have a team registration fee of $15 dollars. If you are interested, please contact me at kb784178@wcupa.edu with your team name and player list! The deadline to register is April 17.
Participants do not have to be West Chester students to participate. This is an invitation to my home community, my college community, and to your communities as well. It’s all about coming together for Mr. Paul Matthews and his drive to …find a cure!
The admissions fee is $2.
There will be baked goods, music, raffles, and lots of dodge ball fun and I absolutely cannot wait to see you there!
Please RSVP with your attendance. If you are interested in donating baked goods, volunteering at the event by refereeing or coordinating check in or game play, having your org/club participate, or have any questions at all, please contact me at kb784178@wcupa.edu.
Can’t wait to see you there!

2nd Annual Eli’s Ride For A Cure

I have searched my heart for the right words to express my feelings of this day.   Today we made a difference in the lives of so many children.   You may never truly understand the sheer magnitude of what you have done.  I am a father that struggles in this life.   I’m a father that made a promise to his little boy at his graveside that I would carry out his Wishes to find a CURE for this MONSTER that took his life.  In the quest I pray that our good LORD will help bring peop…le into my life that want the same thing.   You see I have been in a war zone that did not leave me with PTSD.  Watching my son go through his battle is what left me with PTSD.  I will FIGHT this FUC@$@@ WAR AND WE WILL WIN!!!!

We tripled the turn out this year.  Thank you.

Great job to our blockers.

Please I know I left off a ton of names and it’s only because I’m drained today emotionally and I want you to know you all mean so much to me.  Eli Seth Matthews Still touching hearts from heaven. Carl Kramer Rick Clark

Eli Seth Matthews scholarship will be Awarded on May 27, 2015

 

HERO

On May 27, 2015 the Eli Seth Matthews Leukemia Foundation, Inc. will award the Eli Seth Matthews scholarship to a graduating senior from the Oxford Area High School for the fourth year in a row. This is awarded to a student that is going to study for a career in the medical field.  The high school students do so much to help the foundation and without their hard work and dedication to the Eli Seth Matthews Leukemia Foundation we would not be as strong and thriving as we are. We are truly grateful for all that they do.

Sarah Hershey Congratulations!!!!!
