This exciting fundraising event supported by the South Huntington School District and held in September, 2017 in honor of childhood cancer awareness month raised over $33,000.00 in it's first year!!!!! Many children, parents and teachers are to thank for the success of this Challenge. We are proud of everyone's efforts and enthusiasm. This year, we aim to roll out this program to other school districts locally and then, nationally. Maggie's Mission Two Week Challenge was a "funraiser" that got the children excited about participating and the role they played in raising money for such an important cause. We can't wait to see what next year brings. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get your school involved.
Maggie LOVED yoga. She would spend hours stretching her body to learn various yoga moves. After our night of commemorating and remembering Maggie Schmidt at Maggie's Mission Angelversary Gala on June 1, 2018, we would like to honor Maggie's spirit once again by hosting Yoga for Maggie on the Great Lawn of The Montauk Yacht Club the next day, Saturday, June 2, 2018 at 11:30 a.m.
Eugene Feis from yogawithgene.com has generously donated his time to teach this class. Gene is a Dharma Yoga® Center, NYC, certified teacher and has been practicing yoga for over 25 years. Spirituality, consistency, and dedication are the hallmarks of Eugene’s practice.
Contributions of $25 per person are suggested and can be paid day of the event. You will have the opportunity to purchase Maggie's Mission yoga towels both the night of the Gala and again (if available) the morning of Yoga for Maggie.
We hope you will join us for this special class. Weather permitting, we will be releasing Painted Lady Butterflies afterwards.
Maggie's Mission Inaugural Angelversary Gala!
THANKS TO EVERYONE FOR THEIR AMAZING SUPPORT!
Maggie's Mission Angelversary Gala benefiting Maggie's Mission was held on June 1, 2018, on a day to the year Maggie Schmidt lost her battle to Malignant Rhabdoid Tumors. Together, with the help of family, friends and many local businesses, we raised over $130,000! This will help Maggie's Mission finish funding their first research project on MRT at Memorial Sloan Kettering.
Everyone came together despite a little rain and enjoyed a wonderful, magical evening under the big tent on the great lawn of Gurney's Montauk Yacht Club honoring Maggie Schmidt, while fundraising to find cures for rare pediatric cancers and helping local families with expenses after the diagnosis of pediatric cancers.
The event was filled with a sea of people in white, which signified the "Angel"versary theme, while also remembering Maggie, who five years prior had worn white as a bridesmaid in her Uncle and Aunt's wedding party on June 1, 2013 at the same venue.
Thanks to everyone who supported us! Event photos can be found at Christopher Appoldt, password is maggie, all lower case.
On what would have been Maggie's 18th birthday, a "Music for Maggie" fundraiser was held at Harborfields Central School District, the biggest fundraiser the High School has ever had. The event raised just over $12,000. From it, two $2,000 scholarships were awarded to graduating musical students to help towards college expenses. Maggie would have been a graduating senior this June, 2018.
HFamily is committed to helping Maggie's Mission, a non profit started in Maggie's memory and dedicated to raising awareness and funding research to find cures for rare pediatric cancers.
Ms. McGinty, Mrs. Garside and Mr. Taylor from Harborfields School District helped students run this event. Maggie's close friend Kayla Sarcona also helped. Andrew Schild donated his sound and DJ services for the evening.
Cycle for Survival 2018!
Our inspiring and amazing team raised just over $6,000 this year. Though our initial goal was more, we still have many fundraising events coming up! All of the money raised will fund Maggie's Mission research project at Memorial Sloan Kettering on Malignant Rhabdoid Tumors. We thank our team for their fundraising efforts and support of our mission. They cycled with their heart and souls to ride for Maggie. We love you Maggie and we ride for you! We will never forget! #findacure #maggiesmission #cycleforsurvial
Our Team page is still open to take donations so it's not too late to make a donation! Your efforts will fight cancer and make a real impact. Thank you in advance for your support! Together, we can bring new and better treatments to patients worldwide.
JOIN THE BATTLE. GIVE TODAY TO BEAT RARE CANCERS.
Despite the bitter cold and freezing temps on January 1, 2018, many supporters, including Father Time and Baby New Year came and rallied against the cold to run Maggie's Mile. With the help of The Northport Running Club, the employees of Sunken Meadow State Park in Kings Park, and our Sponsors, Maggie's Mile was a great day and successful event.
Together we raised over $10,000 to put towards the research project on Malignant Rhabdoid Tumors we are funding at Memorial Sloan Kettering.
We want to thank Harborfields High School students, staff, and families for putting on the Talent Show "Singing for Sloan" which raised $7095.00. The money raised in Maggie Schmidt's honor is being used to fund the Memorial Sloan Kettering Malignant Rhabdoid Tumor Research Project to find a cure. This new research project is being led by Dr. Srikanth Reddy Ambati M.D., who cared for Maggie.
Thank you to everyone who organized and participated in the event. WE WILL NOT FORGET YOU MAGGIE SCHMIDT!
