Two foundations team up to make a difference by rowing across Lake Michigan!

Row4Kids is the brainchild of Charles Tillman (The Charles Tillman Cornerstone Foundation) and Jacob Beckley (The Beckley Foundation), who are teaming up to fight childhood cancer by rowing non-stop across Lake Michigan in August 2019.

Recognizing the complexity, and enormity, of devastating childhood disease is what brought the Cornerstone Foundation and the Beckley Foundation together. Thus begins “Row4Kids”, with an end goal to support families and children affected by childhood cancer by providing awareness, funding for research and mobilizing boots on the ground family support.

Tillman’s Cornerstone Foundations focuses on the devastating effects childhood illness wreaks on families while the Beckley Foundation supports investigation and research into finding cures, specifically for neuroblastoma.
