About This Activity

The Ross Mullooly Project, Outrunning Cancer, was founded by our son, who was battling metastatic rectal cancer. Ross was diagnosed at 19, and after being declared cancer free in August 2011, he was diagnosed with a recurrence, which was Stage 4 and metastatic in June 2012. Ross never asked why me, and instead focused on starting a non-profit to aid others with cancer. The Ross Mullooly Project was started with the hope of raising $10,000 for the Patrick Taylor Hope Lodge in New Orleans, LA. The past three annual events have raised over $100,000.00, and have provided funds for needed improvements at Hope Lodge. In addition to approximately $50,000 in donations to Hope Lodge, we have made donations to the Children's Miracle Network (A favorite of my son), been the sole sponsor of the Friends of the Bayou Children's Health Fair, gift cards and toys to patients spending the holidays in the hospital, DVD players and over 150 movies to the Hope Lodge and the Oncology Unit at Ochsner Medical Center, a walker, wheelchair, and toiletries to the Hope Lodge, DVD’s, diapers, water, gift cards, bi-weekly supply of snacks(which all have been purchased at Sam’s) for chemo-therapy patients at Mary Byrd Perking Cancer Center and Leonard Chabert Medical Center in Houma, and needed supplies to the Ronald McDonald House.
