Breweries Nationwide Come Together to Fund Childhood Cancer Research
(September 2021) – Slack Tide Brewing Co. is proud to announce a partnership with Brewing Funds the Cure! We are excited to be a part of this cause and hope you will join us in our efforts! We will release Rising Hope Hazy IPA in our tap room and we hope you will join us at our release party on October 29th. 100% of the proceeds from Rising Hope will be donated to the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation!
The Brewing Funds the Cure initiative allows the passion and creativity from the brewing industry nationwide to help fund critical research in collaboration with the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation. The signature program for Brewing Funds the Cure is the annual release of Rising Hope. Now in its third year, the goal of the program is to have one brewery in each state produce the iconic “Rising Hope” IPA. In the first two years of the release of Rising Hope, craft brewing partners across the country have raised over $325,000 for pediatric cancer research!
Brew masters from Cigar City Brewing and Florida Avenue Brewing have designed a new recipe each year and Country Malt Group, Yakima Chief Hops, and Amoretti Fruit Puree partners provide free ingredients to each of the Rising Hope breweries. In addition, Blue Label Packaging Co has donated labels for canning and Taphandles are providing signature tap handles for all breweries. The signature IPA is being released through September and October, and 100% of the proceeds will benefit the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation. 2021 partners will be updated on the virtual map at: www.brewingfundsthecure.org.
Why is this important?
- Cancer is the #1 cause of death by disease among children
- 43 children per day are expected to be diagnosed with cancer
- Only 4% of the billions of dollars that are spent annually on cancer research and treatments are directed towards treating childhood cancer
- More than 95% of those who survive childhood cancer will have a significant health related issue by the time they are 45 as a result of being treated with drugs designed for adults.
