The Blast is an event all about promises. It was born from the promise made between two friends, Alexa Sankary and Michael Mancuso. Michael was diagnosed at the age of 4 with neuroblastoma. Before he passed away at the age of 7, Alexa promised him she would help find a cure for the children suffering from this terrible disease.
That promise was made over 11 years ago and since that time, The Blast has raised $1.2 million for the Neuroblastoma Program at Cook Children’s! The Blast continues to be an awe inspiring community event honoring Michael’s memory and celebrating the courage and strength of all the children and families affected by neuroblastoma at Cook Children’s.
