TB1F's mission is to positively affect every child and family who comes through the University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital. Areas of focus will be Child Family Life and their programming, financial support in areas of basic family's needs, positive outreach through social functions, Brax's exclusive 5th Floor T-shirt for all cancer patients and supporting Kyle Rudolph's End Zone, the Zucker Family Suite and Broadcast Studio, and the "Row The Boat" Fleck Family Fund with their incredible programming for both patients and families.
TB1F and Brax want to make everyone's experience and recovery as positive as it can be. No One Fights Alone! We Got This!
One of TB1F's primary focus areas is Child Family Life. This group is instrumental in making not only the patient's time on Floor 5 as comfortable and enjoyable as possible, but also the entire family. Brax was immediately blown away by this wonderful group of people and their role in the hospital and she wants to make CFL a focus area by providing patients and families with entertainment, meal and incidental gift cards to help with day to day needs. The time spent in the hospital away from family and friends outside of your normal "comfort" zone can be very challenging and overwhelming and TB1F wants to help in making this easier in any way possible.
In addition, there is also a special request form which can be filled out for special or specific requests. For many families, they are coming to the University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital from out of town and many much further away. There may be times a family needs extra help in regards to travel, lodging or even coordinating a special family member or friend to come visit. TB1F wants to try and help.

Brax in partnership with UNRL is providing every new Floor 5 oncology patient with a very special (and exclusive) TB1F/UNRL T-Shirt.
Brax was an instant fan of UNRL after seeing their clothing at the Champions for Children Golf Event to support the Masonic Children's Hospital. And one of their catch phrases couldn't fit more perfectly - "you are what you wear". Every kid on Floor 5 is truly UNREAL and what better way to show it than by wearing it.
One of Brax's favorite days around the hospital is when they hold special social events and bring food to the main lobby (Olive Garden, Red Rabbit, Ice Cream, and more). Brax's favorite morning food (or anytime food) is donuts and more specifically Dunkin' chocolate glazed donuts. She coined the phrase "Donut Ever Give Up!" and in honor of that we will be having a quarterly Dunkin' breakfast for all Masonic patients and families in the main lobby. In addition, TB1F will be sponsoring monthly Dunkin' donuts & coffee for Floor 5 staff
Our 1st Annual Flippin' 5K for TB1Fund hosted by TCT Gymnastics was a huge success.. We are already working on the 2020 5K. Thanks to our generous sponsors, all registered race/walk participants will receive an exclusive Flippin' 5K long sleeve by UNRL and all proceeds will go to help supporting programming at the University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital. Check back for the link to register and for more details. We look forward to seeing you at the race in 2020!
Kyle Rudolph's End Zone, the Zucker Family Suite and Broadcast Studio, and the "Row The Boat" Fleck Family Fund all play incredible roles in patients and families day to day lives around the hospital and these spaces set the University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital apart from others. TB1F will be working to support these programs and all they do to provide an unparalleled in-house experience. The culture around Masonic is truly amazing!
