Real Hope, Real Heroes Gala: The Gala raises public awareness about chronic pain and the mission of U.S. Pain Foundation. Yet most importantly, the evening will recognize children and our nation’s heroes for their strength, courage, wisdom, resilience and willingness to share their lives with us.
Created by 14-year-old Tyler Cashman in 2015, Points for Pain is a unique fundraiser and awareness campaign where sports fans can pledge donations based on the number of points their team scores. All proceeds benefit the U.S. Pain Foundation’s Pediatric Pain Program, which offers scholarships to a week-long pediatric pain summer camp, an INvisible Project magazine and gala highlighting the brave stories of young children with pain, and an educational event, Take Control of Your Pain. Tyler created the program in honor of his mom, Casey, who lives with several painful chronic conditions. Since 2015, he has raised nearly $35,000 for children with pain.
Fight Gone Bad is a fundraiser in the form of a CrossFit workout. The workout consists of five different movements and three consecutive rounds. When CrossFit Headquarters decided to no longer lead this fundraiser workout of the day, CrossFit gyms around the nation had the opportunity to continue this event as an independent fundraiser, highlighting a charity they wish to support.
