Because of his commitment, children’s lives are being changed. We need more corporate support to find the cures for the many types of cancers impacting the children in our community.”

Since 2008, TeamConnor has donated more than $3 million to numerous hospitals across the country in its mission to fund research that attempts to find new treatment options and cures. Childhood cancer is the number one disease killer of children, yet the federal government allocates less than four percent of its funds to pediatric cancer research.
TeamConnor hosts several events throughout the year to raise funds and awareness for childhood cancer research, including the 10th Annual Northwestern Mutual Clay Shoot, November 2, 2020.
