Community Involved: We Are Making a Difference
Fundraising Events

The Live Like Andi Foundation mandate is to raise money through charitable events to fund research leading to a cure for Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma, and to support ACC patients and their families. Through the fall of 2011, we have raised more than $375,000 for our cause.


We are not planning a Walk/Run event for this year. We would like to thank all the volunteers, runners and supporters who made this a successful event in past years.

Our first Walk & Run & Fashion Walk premiered in 2008 and continued through 2014. This annual event was a great way for supporters to get involved, either as a participant, volunteer, fundraiser, or corporate sponsor or individual donor.

We've got other events throughout the year, including a "Doe Days" Golf Outing at Walnut Creek Country Club in Novi, Michigan in July, Fashion Show Events, Luncheons, and ACC family support programs and many opportunities for people to donate their time and energy or make financial contributions to this important cause.
