Last year I met Len Forkas, whose passion and commitment to help sick children inspired me to run. It turns out I'm pretty fast for my size.

Hopecam helps children diagnosed with cancer overcome one of their many unexpected challenges - isolation. Through technology, kids with cancer can connect with their classmates for an average cost of $1,000 per sick child.

I'm asking for donations so that kids can avoid loneliness and continue their friendships and schoolwork during cancer treatment. My dream is to help as many Hopecam kids as possible with a  goal of raising $100,000 that will change the lives of over 2,500 children -100 sick kids and their classmates. Here is how I will lead this team to victory:

Between now and October, I will run 5K racess in 15 states. My 4 feet / 49 pound frame will run a total of 32 competitions for a total of 100 miles. How can you join our team? You can inspire me to run through donations that will go exclusively to Hopecam. My average time is about 24 minutes for a 5K. But, if your donations motivate me to run faster, I might shatter records while helping others. Wouldn't that be cool?

Together we can give an assist to less fortunate children during a difficult time. I have the speed. Sick kids have a need. Let's do a good deed! Please donate to Matteo Runs and Hopecam!






Hopecam, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, has a simple yet life-saving mission: to reduce the loneliness felt by young cancer patients as they undergo treatment.

We provide tablet computers and other forms of technology that enable homebound children to stay connected with their classmates, friends and family. The learning and laughter lift the spirits of these children and help them stay positive during a difficult time.

Hopecam takes pride in connecting over 2,000 children to 40,000 classmates in the U.S. and abroad. Ninety percent of the students helped by Hopecam attend Title 1 schools.

Our goal is to transform the lives of many more children with cancer. But we cannot do it alone.
