Andy's Challenge makes a DIFFERENCE!

Team in Training

  • Approximately $155,000 has been given to Team in Training since 2014 to fund LLS-sponsored research grants and patient services.

Andy's Ambassadors Charities

In order to mentor and give our Andy’s Ambassadors an avenue to give back to charities that touched their hearts during their cancer treatments, Andy’s Challenge supports selected charities on behalf of our heroes. Our Andy’s Ambassadors chose the following in 2018:

  • MD Anderson Arts in Medicine, $500

  • The Periwinkle Foundation, $1,000

  • The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, $1,000

Man Woman of the Year

Andy's Challenge continued to support LLS in April 2018 by making a $2,500 donation to the Man/Woman of the Year campaign on behalf of Sylvia Steiger in 2018 in honor of her young hero, Rhett. The entire group of candidates raised over $1 million in 10 weeks, and Andy's Challenge was part of Sylvia’s fundraising amount of $123,000.  

Light the Night

In April 2018, we donated $5,000 in honor of Luetta Allen’s birthday and another $5,000 in honor of Andy Allen's 15th birthday in October 2018.  

Be The Match

Over $4,000 went to Be the Match as the recipient of the Andy's Challenge Wine Raffle in 2018.

St. Jude's

$1,000 went to support the St. Jude's Marathon in memory of Austyn Halter.

WHAT IS NEXT IN 2019?

Exciting new partnerships! Our wine raffle will benefit The Periwinkle Foundation and their Iron Sommelier event on October 30, 2019 with the winning ticket being drawn on November 8th. We will be offering an online silent auction this fall with proceeds benefiting Candlelighters Houston.  Andy's Ambassadors will continue to offer significant support of LLS, MD Anderson Arts in Medicine and St. Jude's. MORE IMPACT!
