While Ryan was going through treatment we met other local families and saw a need in the local community for additional financial support. We had been raising money for our local Light the Night walk since 2009, but we knew that we could do more locally. The Tigerfight Foundation was established and became a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization in May of 2014.
The detailed Mission of the Tigerfight Foundation is to establish ourselves within the community as a philanthropic organization and raise funds to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and Kern County families who are currently going through pediatric blood cancer treatment. We reached our primary goal in 2014 by becoming a 501c3 non-profit organization. Our focus is assisting families in the present and always looking towards the future.
