It has been over 13 years since Christiana left us to her permanent home in Heaven and it seems like it was just yesterday. We spent over a decade of bike riding in memory of Christiana with the California Coast Classic, and it helped our family heal and turn our tragedy into something good for other children and families battling autoimmune diseases. Team Also Touch raised over $500,000 for the Arthritis Foundation and it has been an incredible experience. We couldn’t have done it without you!
In 2018, we launched the Also Touch Foundation in Memory of Christiana. Thanks to your generosity, we have raised over $18,000 to date! The Also Touch Foundations has made grants to the Arthritis Foundation and Cure JM. Both recipient organizations focus on research and minimizing the time it takes to diagnose patients so that they can begin treatment more quickly.
Also Touch is a fund at Silicon Valley Community Foundation (SVCF). Donations will be processed by SVCF, a 501(c)3 public charity registered in the United States, EIN# 20-5205488. Contributions will be tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law. SVCF will provide a formal acknowledgment letter containing tax-deduction language for your records.
