Help Nate Raise Funds for his 10th Birthday to Benefit St. Baldrick’s Foundation

Nate Pautsch, son of KeyLimeTie Co-Founder & CEO Chris Pautsch, has participated in the St. Baldrick's Foundation Shave-a-thon for the last four years in honor of his friend Mikayla Sweeney. Nate met Mikayla, who was diagnosed with kidney cancer at the age of 5, at school, and the pair became fast friends. Since then, Nate continues to shave his head to raise money for St. Baldrick’s Foundation, which raises funds for life-saving childhood cancer research.

Mikayla says that “because of organizations like St. Baldrick’s, I have been in remission for four years.”

Nate is once again raising money for all the children suffering from cancer. Nate will shave his head on March 8 in recognition of Mikayla and in culmination of raising funds for St. Baldrick’s.

Today, February 26, is Nate’s birthday. And all Nate wants for his birthday is to raise funds for childhood cancer research on behalf of Mikayla and for St. Baldrick’s Foundation.

Will you make a $10 donation on behalf of Nate’s 10th Birthday for Mikayla and St. Baldrick’s Foundation? Your $10 donation could help a child suffering with cancer enter remission from life-saving research and celebrate their 10th birthday: View Nate's Donation Page

Nate is not asking you to shave your head. He will take one for the team. All he wants is for you to donate the cost of two grande vanilla lattes to help fund life-saving childhood cancer research.

Nate’s parents, Chris and Tricia, could not be more proud of their son, Nate, and what he has done for his friend Mikayla and St. Baldrick’s Foundation. On May 10, 2013, Nate will receive the Outstanding Youth in Philanthropy Award from the Association of Fundraising Professionals (Chicago Chapter). This is a huge honor! Nate will receive his award alongside Kerry and Sarah Wood, BMO Harris Bank, and other leading Chicago philanthropists.

The staff of KeyLimeTie would like to congratulate Nate on his award and we hope you can support this fabulous cause. Congrats, Nate!
