TAMPA, FL / ACCESSWIRE / September 27, 2023 / The Brewing Funds the Cure initiative allows the passion and creativity of the brewing industry to help fund critical research in collaboration with the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation. The signature program for Brewing Funds the Cure is the annual release of Rising Hope. Now in its 5th year, the program's goal is to have one brewery in each state produce the iconic "Rising Hope" brew. With the 2023 release of Rising Hope, craft brewing partners across the country have raised over $1 million for pediatric cancer research!
Brew masters from Florida Avenue Brewing and Mike Hess Brewing have designed an East Coast (Hazy Mango IPA) and West Coast (Orange Blossom Pale Ale) recipe for breweries to choose from. Partners Country Malt Group, Yakima Chief Hops, Amoretti Fruit Puree and AB Biotech provide free ingredients to each of the Rising Hope breweries. In addition, Blue Label Packaging Co has donated labels for canning, and Taphandles are providing signature tap handles for all breweries. The signature brew will be a limited release, and 100% of the proceeds will benefit the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation. 2023 partners will be updated on the virtual map at: www.brewingfundsthecure.org.
Why is this important?
Cancer is the #1 cause of death by disease among children
43 children per day are expected to be diagnosed with cancer
Only 4% of the billions of dollars that are spent annually on cancer research and treatments are directed toward treating childhood cancer
• More than 95% of those who survive childhood cancer will have a significant health-related issue by the time they are 45 as a result of being treated with drugs designed for adults.
