Team Sammie was a fun family event that was held in honor of Sammie Hartsfield in 2009. Sammie dealt with osteosarcoma for more than two years. She wanted to raise money to fund an osteosarcoma research grant, and the event succeeded in raising $25,000!
About the Initiative
The Liddy Shriver Sarcoma Initiative works to award sarcoma research grants to expert investigators around the world. The Initiative maintains an extremely low overhead of 2-3% per year. Thus, 97-98% of the funds we receive go directly to support sarcoma research.
