Family and friends of Nick Bal are coming together in his honor to raise money for the Upper Michigan Brain Tumor Center. Please support us!

Thank you to everyone who has been so generous already! I've never done this before, so I wasn't even sure if we would reach our goal at all, but you all have been so generous that we're already almost there! We still have about a month and a half left, so I've raised the challenge... let's see how far we can take this! Again, thank you to everyone, this means more to my family and me than words could ever express. And you're not just helping my family and me, you're helping this organization help EVERYONE that has been affected in any way by cancer!


Hi, my name is Jake Bal. On Saturday, May 12, 2012 the Upper Michigan Brain Tumor Center in Marquette, Michigan will be holding its annual fundraising event, the Hope Starts Here Challenge. I will be competing in the Duathlon, along with my family and many of our friends who will join me in the various events, including the Half-Marathon, Leisure Run/Walk, and 5k and 10k runs. We will be running in honor of my father, who lost his battle with brain cancer just last year. Please help me help this organization. Donate what you can, or just come out to support us! Anything and everything will be greatly appreciated!

***Due to the nature of the GiveForward organization, all money raised will be sent directly to our family. We will then hand-deliver all money raised to the UMBTC. This will not change in any way the amount given to the UMBTC, but simply must be noted, just so you are aware. Thanks!
