We are all facing an increasingly challenging time as COVID-19 has moved from an isolated and seemingly distant outbreak to a global pandemic that is now clearly among us. The reality of the rapid spread of this virus calls upon us to acknowledge how our daily life has dramatically changed. It also stresses the urgent need to step up interventions aimed at keeping ourselves, our families, donors, volunteers, our many partners at Johns Hopkins, including our Patient Ambassadors and Hopkins caregivers, safe and healthy.

 

In respect for everyone’s safety and health, we have rescheduled the Hebda Foundation Gala from April 25, 2020 to April 24, 2021 at the U.S. Naval Academy Stadium “N” Room.

 

If you have purchased a Gala ticket, we will be in touch with you via email in the next several days.

While the pandemic has caused us to postpone this year’s Gala, the need for funding Childhood Cancer research and to fund camperships at Camp Sunrise continues. We will be releasing details on our online fundraising efforts to continue raising funds to provide money for research and for Camp Sunrise soon. Any donation would be greatly appreciated as we go through difficult times with COVID-19 so we can continue our support of childhood cancer. In the interim, if you wish support this cause by a direct donation, you can send your check payable to the “The Zachary Hebda Foundation” to:

 

The Hebda Foundation
Post Office Box 322
Linthicum, Maryland 21090.

 

Our sincere thanks for your continued support over the year! Stay healthy everyone!
