The Mike Doiron – Legends of Friendswood organization is recognized as a 501(c) (3) organization and to date has provided in excess of $635,000 in donations to The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, The Friendswood Education Foundation and the Friendswood Independent School District.
The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center:
Over the history of our organization, more than $432,000 has been donated to The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center for critical seed money to develop new innovative protocols and treatments. In 2016 the generosity of our sponsors, donors, and participants allowed us to donate $25,000 to this cause. We are grateful that the research physicians that utilize our funding continually reach new goals of successful protocols that are really proving positive, life-saving results. We are so thankful and honored to have the numerous cancer survivors and those that honor love ones we’ve lost continue to join our fundraising efforts in appreciation to MD Anderson.
Friendswood Independent School District:
Over $203,000 has been given to the Friendswood Independent School District and the Friendswood Education Foundation in the form of grants for the enhancement, development, and enrichment of education within our schools. Our contribution to FISD in 2016 was $10,000 for Science/Technology/Engineering/Math (STEM) program development. The district purchased a classroom set of 30 “Google Virtual Reality Viewers” that allow for “Virtual Field Trips” that stimulate learning in a completely new modern way. We are very excited about bringing this technology to the Friendswood Independent School District that will be utilized at all campuses, K-12, as the set is moved to each campus to use! The Legends of Friendswood Organization seeks to fill initiatives that will serve the students of FISD broadly throughout all grade levels, and we were excited to bring the dream of Superintendent, Trish Hanks, to fruition to have this cutting edge teaching technology in 2016!
