The Gonzmart Family Foundation will donate $85,000 to Moffitt Cancer Center as a result of Richard’s Father’s Day Family Walk and Jog.

The money is earmarked for the Advanced Prostate Cancer Collaboration at Moffitt.
The Foundation paid all of the expenses from the June 21 event and donated 100 percent of the proceeds. The total is a $5,000 increase from the same event last year.
Thank you to our walkers, joggers, sponsor, volunteers and employees who made this event possible.
Please mark your calendars for Father’s Day, June 19, for the 2016 event.
When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bounds. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.
This quote was a great motivator for me and still is. Using my experience as a runner and my desire to find a cure for cancer I created “Richard’s Run for Life” under the Gonzmart Family Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds to find a cure for cancer. Creating Richard’s Run was a way to fulfill this goal of finding a cure.
