Who are we?  The Gr8t Chase devotes its energy to passionately advocating for families whose children are in need of hope, compassion, and financial support as they are battling life-limiting illnesses.

Our Why?  Chase Donnell was a 10 year old boy who had a golden soul that radiated onto others with compassion, joy, and empathy. He strived to help others in need, even in his last moments on this earth, he gave away his last wish to his fellow school mates by remodeling his school gymnasium along with new sports equiptment so that they could enjoy being kids and have fun. He longed to not be forgotten as he left this world and with your help, we can continue his legacy in helping others when they find themselves in the same situation of having their lives disrupted.
