Power of our Supporters!!

Last week, on April 30th, we shared some news with you that a young person The Zippy Fund previously supported was just given dire news after almost three years of battling Sarcoma.

We ran a 48 hour campaign to raise funds as the patients final request was to take a trip with their family to Hawaii.

We had an overwhelming response from our community. A very BIG thank you to everyone that contributed!

Due to the decline in health and intense amount of pain, doctors and their family decided it was best to not travel all the way to Hawaii, BUT did allow their family to go away together to Puerto Rico. They are there now enjoying much needed time away as a family.

We were able to contribute to make this trip happen and also will be providing additional funds to help this family during this difficult time. This is all thanks to our incredible community of supporters. THANK YOU!

We mean it when we say every $1 counts. We’re very grateful to each and every one of you 💚💜🙏🏼

2018 Zippyfund Gala

Another successful Zippyfund Gala in the books! This one was extra special as it was about our patients and their stories. These children and their families deal with the unthinkable and we are humbled to be a small part of their journey. All the funds we raised at the gala will go directly to our patients and their families. 


Thank you to every single person who bought a ticket, who attended and was in the room with us, who was thinking of us from afar, who made a donation, who volunteered their time, who provided a basket or raffle prize, and the list goes on. Special thank you to our photographers, videographer, our DJ, Ninety Three Entertainment & the Bridgewater Manor! And a special shout out to our patients, Amber, David & Lilly who were able to be with us this year! We were so honored to have you with us. 


Stay tuned for other events and fundraisers we will have coming up throughout the rest of 2018. The best way to follow us is via Facebook and Instagram and our website. Most of our communications will be done through there. Of course, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to email us at zippyfund@gmail.com


Please spread the word about our fund and if you know of a family in need or that has a child battling cancer, send them our way or nominate them through our website!


We’re humbled to be given the opportunity to do the work of The Zippyfund, but it wouldn’t be possible without our tremendous community and support system behind us. There isn’t a second we take that for granted. 


Much love and gratitude from all of us!

We Love Make-A-Wish!

Make-A-Wish NJ asked Zippy to share why he created The Zippy Fund and continues to support Make-A-Wish New Jersey years after his wish:

"As the director of The Zippy Fund, Zippy Cimino, Make-A-Wish New Jersey holds a special place in my heart for what they did for my family and I. After a grueling five months of my first battle with cancer, all I wanted was a vacation for my family and I to celebrate my life being healthy and happy. My family is the greatest support system I could have ever asked for. The sacrifices they made to always be by side and help me fight did something for me mentally that is immeasurable. Make-A-Wish New Jersey enabled me to bring my family on a dream vacation. This week-long trip was the perfect culmination of my cancer treatment and brought life full circle for us. For this, I will be forever indebted to Make-A-Wish New Jersey and will always try to collaborate with them to fulfill other wishes of children fighting this relentless disease through my Foundation. We think it is important to grant wishes for other children as having an outlet during or right after their treatment can be one of the most mentally rehabilitating experiences for the courageous child and their supportive families."

Way to Go Jason Cimino!

Jason completed a 100-mile bike ride yesterday in Columbus, Ohio to help end cancer.

This time Jason rode in support of an amazing charity named Pelotonia. It's an annual bike race that has raised over $130M in just 8 years for moonshot cancer research. Jason spent time getting to know the team at Pelotonia over the past few months, and found their passion to be infectious. They believe, like us that if we band together we can end cancer 💜💚

Congrats to Jason & his Raizlab coworkers for this amazing accomplishment!! We love you and are so proud of you!
