Deadline to submit your nomination is December 7, 2023.

The 2023 Cash, Sweat & Tears Award is sponsored by

2022 Winner: Rachael Chambers

Rachael Chambers, who has rallied her colleagues at Cisco to raise millions for Covenant House since 2016, has been selected for the 2022 Cash, Sweat & Tears Award, an honor given to North America’s most inspiring fundraising volunteer each year by the Peer-to-Peer Professional Forum.

Chambers, a successful Silicon Valley veteran has faced her own challenges over the years, but when she heard a homeless teen sheltering at a Covenant House share her story of struggle in 2016 something deep inside her clicked.

“My view of the world was so completely changed that day. I knew we had to look out for these kids,” said Chambers, a 17-year veteran of Cisco, a leading information technology company.

Chambers went on to take the lead on Cisco’s involvement in Covenant House International’s Sleep Out program, events in which supporters spend a night outdoors to raise money for services for homeless and runaway youth. From a group of 43 employees raising $116,000 in 2016, Chambers has helped inspire hundreds of colleagues to participate, executive leadership to embrace the effort with $5 million in company donations and Cisco’s Team Sleep Out to raise $7.7 million dollars.

2021 Winner: Michael Harris
Michael Harris, a first-time peer-to-peer fundraiser who last year raised more than $33,000 for Children’s Cancer Research Fund, has been selected for the 2021 Cash, Sweat & Tears Award, an award given to North America’s most inspiring fundraising volunteer. Harris, a recent colon cancer survivor, embarked on a 489-mile bike journey through Texas as part of Great Cycle Challenge USA, a virtual fundraiser in which riders across the country fundraise to support childhood cancer research.
2020 Winner: Jack Hughes
Jack Hughes, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (T1D) more than half a century ago, has been a tireless rider in 10 JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes events. At the age of 92, he planned to embark on yet another fundraising ride in Death Valley in October. He has raised over $400,000 to date for JDRF, the leading global organization funding T1D research. For Hughes, support for JDRF began late in his life. He participated in his first ride in 2011.
2019 Winner: Jacki Splittorf-Sullins
Jacki Splittorf-Sullins is founder and organizer of the Baxter Trails CureSearch Hike — an annual fundraiser in South Carolina that has so far raised nearly $150,000 for the cancer nonprofit CureSearch for Children’s Cancer and has spawned a number of similar hikes across the country that raise money for the charity. She also founded Harlan’s Heroes, a nonprofit that provides support to parents of children who are battling cancer — and has been a leading advocate for families after losing her son, Harlan, to the disease.
2018 Winner: Chris McPhee
Chris McPhee is the type of supporter nonprofits dream about. The 42-year-old paramedic has personally raised $30,000 for the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation through the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer. But the ride’s organizers say his work leading the Paramedics for the Cure ride team — an effort that has raised nearly $700,000 for the organization — is both inspiring and extraordinary.
2017 Winner: Teri Griege
Teri Griege was given just five years to live when she was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer in 2009. Not only has she courageously battled her cancer, she has competed in endurance events around the world and has helped raise nearly $750,000 for the cancer charity Pedal the Cause.
2016 Winner: Alexys Fleming
Alexys Fleming, a 23-year-old expert make-up artist living with type 1 diabetes, who taps into family, friends and a network of millions of YouTube followers to raise money for the American Diabetes Association, has been named the winner of the 2016 Cash, Sweat and Tears Award.
2015 Winner: Anthony Carbajal
The 2015 Cash, Sweat & Tears Award honored Anthony Carbajal — the creator of a poignant Ice Bucket Challenge Video that has raised $3.8-million for The ALS Therapy Development Institute.
2014 Winner: Dave Van der Linden
The 2014 Cash, Sweat & Tears Award winner, Dave Van der Linden, has been a dedicated Walk MS participant since 2000. Motivated to do something following his mother’s diagnosis with multiple sclerosis (MS), Van der Linden took part in his first Walk MS event in 2000. Over the course of the last 13 years, Van der Linden has raised nearly $700,000 for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and recently completed his first road race, the ING New York City Marathon.
2013 Winner: Julie Weiss
Julie Weiss was devastated by the loss of her father in 2010 to pancreatic cancer. Determined to honor her father and combat the disease that took his life, she set herself an audacious goal: Run 52 marathons in 52 weeks to raise money and awareness for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. In addition to memorializing her beloved father, Julie used each marathon to honor people afflicted with pancreatic cancer. To date, her fundraising exceeds $143,000.
2012 Winner: Sam Fox
From August 25 to October 25, 2011, Sam Fox stretched his physical and mental endurance to the max by running and hiking 2,400 miles from Mexico to Canada along the Pacific Coast Trail in honor of his mother Lucy, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2000. In the process, Sam raised over $170,000 for the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research through his Run While You Can foundation. Along the way, Sam, a Yale University graduate, built an online community of passionate supporters and was the subject of a documentary film.
2011 Winner: John Killian
When his infant son Sam was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy, John became one of the most active members of the Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy, an organization of which he is now chairman of the board. Especially dear to John has been Run For Our Sons, PPMD’s endurance fundraising program. John was not an avid runner when Sam was diagnosed, but upon learning about Run For Our Sons, he immediately began to train and has participated in dozens of marathons to raise funds. Hundreds of thousands of dollars later, John is the greatest single fundraiser in the Run For Our Sons program.
2010 Winner: Jennifer Bechard
Whether she is lying in a hospital bed or crossing a finish line, 22-year-old Jennifer Bechard doesn’t let hydrocephalus stop her from acting on her passion: supporting the Hydrocephalus Association’s series of fundraising walks. Her exemplary commitment earned Bechard the 2010 Cash, Sweat and Tears Award, an honor presented each year by the Run Walk Ride Fundraising Council to an inspiring volunteer who goes above and beyond in “thon fundraising.”
2009 Winner: Barbara Jo Kirshbaum
Barbara Jo Kirshbaum was nominated for this award by Avon Walk for Breast Cancer Program Director Eloise Caggiano. In her testimonial, Caggiano explained: “Barbara Jo Kirshbaum has been walking for breast cancer since 1998. And since 2002, she has participated in every Avon Walk for Breast Cancer nationwide each year. This past year she reached two amazing milestones, she completed her 100th walk for breast cancer and not only reached – but exceeded! — her astonishing fund-raising goal of $1 million dollars! That’s one woman – one cause – more than one million dollars!"
