Jeffery “Jeff” Drobny, formerly of Scottsdale, AZ, is a managing partner and chief investment officer at Garda Capital Partners in Minneapolis, MN. Jeff Drobny is a supporter of various charities, including the Children’s Cancer Research Fund.
The Children’s Cancer Research Fund, founded in 1981, is an organization that strives to change the way childhood cancer is treated, funding key research initiatives and patient care to find new treatments and create programs that have helped many pediatric patients and their families. One of the annual fundraising events held by Children’s Cancer Research Fund is Time to Fly, which includes a 5k walk, a 5k and 10k run, and a “fun run” for kids.
Each year, Time to Fly invites families, friends, co-workers, and teams to walk in their 5k Walk to Cure Children’s Cancer. The registration fee for the 5k walk is $15, and though there is no fundraising minimum to participate, the organization suggests a fundraising goal of at least $100 for each participant. Experienced runners may opt to participate in either the 5k or 10k run, which are chip-timed so participants can track their own personal running goals.
The Kids’ Fun Run is free to those who registered by June 24. Each kid who participates in the fun run will receive at Time to Fly t-shirt, a ribbon, and the chance to win other prizes. The fee for kids who register on the day of the event is $10.
This year’s Time to Fly event will take place at Phalen Park in Saint Paul, MN, on June 25, 2016.
