A bit more about what your are raising funds for: The Elixir Fund is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the comfort and care of cancer patients and their families. Money raised through our participation in the TCS New York City Marathon will help us to expand our unique new program, the Elixir Fund Registry- an online concierge service for those with cancer and other chronic illnesses. Similar to a bridal or gift registry, patients can create a wish list of needs – groceries, transportation, housekeeping and pet care as well as the little extras such as spa services and family outings. Friends and family can fulfill a patient’s wish list by purchasing items through our site, which will be sent directly to the patient. The perfect answer to “How can I help?”
