The Beckley Foundation hosts and participates in several events each year. Through your support, we are able to provide resources to the most innovative research labs in the United States.



In 2019, former Chicago Bear Charles Tillman and Jacob Beckley will team up for kids by rowing non-stop across Lake Michigan. Tillman’s Cornerstone Foundations focuses on the devastating effects childhood illness wreaks on families while the Beckley Foundation supports investigation and research into finding cures, specifically neuroblastoma.

Alex’s Duck Duck Run

The Beckley Foundation is supporting the The Alex Mandarino Foundation in their quest to find a cure. On Saturday June 15th, 2019, The Alex Mandarino Foundation is hosting the 7th Annual Alex's Duck Duck Run.

Since the start of Alex’s Duck Duck Run in 2013, they have raised $200,000 for childhood cancer research. All proceeds go to funding the best clinical trials and research. What better way to hep celebrate Alex’s life than bringing the community together to raise funds and awareness to make a difference in the lives affected by cancer.

Help us raise funds for childhood cancer while having fun doing it! Alex’s Duck Duck Run is fun for the whole family. Face painting, balloon twisters, inflatable slide and inflatable obstacle course are just a few of the fun things to do the morning of the race
