The Warriors Against Chordoma Golf Tournament and Hoops Challenge were established in 2019 to honor the memory of a courageous fighter, husband, friend, brother, and son—Chuck Mainey.
Our 2020 events will focus again on the rare form of cancer - Chordoma. The Chordoma Foundation was created to support research for improved therapies, connect patients with research studies and qualified therapists and to foster methods to drive better patient care.
Pinnacle Charities is partnering with the Foundation to reach potential event participants and to promote donations for our events. The 2019 Warriors Against Chordoma Golf Tournament and Hoops Challenge raised a combined $20,000 for the Chordoma Foundation, which was the largest fundraiser for the foundation in Texas, and one of the largest first fundraisers ever held for them!
According to Josh Sommer, Executive Director of the Chordoma Foundation:
"2019 was the most impactful year for the Chordoma Foundation yet! Thanks to your support we invested $2.68M in research, made important strides toward finding a drug
that attacks a key aspect of chordoma called brachyury, and are closer than ever to treatments that will improve the lives of chordoma patients today. We also served 535 patients by connecting them with the resources they need to make the best care about their treatment. And none of this would be possible without your support and for that,
I cannot thank you enough!"
