On October 27th, “Team Ollie” participated in Carbone’s Race for Research at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. Oliver’s cousin, Megan Spurgeon, has run in the race for two years now, and this year organized a team to run in Ollie’s name.
Team Ollie was the top fundraising team with a record breaking total of more than $15,000! Plus, Ollie’s brother, Simon, was the top individual fundraiser at nearly $6,000!
After the race we met with members of the research team working on neuroblastoma treatments that will be the recipients of the money. They were kind enough to show us through their lab, and describe some of their latest work. It was great to be able to tie the fundraising to the tangible research being done. Great job, Team Ollie!
