BASKING RIDGE - THE MAX Challenge of Basking Ridge has chosen Team Campbell Foundation for their annual MAX Day of Giving for the second year in a row.  The MAX Day of Giving on Saturday, April 22nd, is a morning of fun, family-friendly, field day style games and music.  The fundraising goal this year is $15,000.  Last year, THE MAX Challenge raised over $11,000 for the local foundation.

“There was no question in our mind when selecting a charity for our Day of Giving that we would choose Team Campbell Foundation once again.  Robin and Greg Hoyt started as members of THE MAX.  Robin now works for us helping others and they are members of the local community.  Selecting the Team Campbell Foundation continues to be a perfect match and very much in line with our core values as a company,” noted Mikki Curcio, owner of THE MAX Challenge of Basking Ridge. 

This year, with the help of The MAX Day of Giving, the Team Campbell Foundation plans to purchase two high-tech Vgo robots, allowing students to stay connected to class even when they are too ill to be at school.   VGo robots offer a unique opportunity for patients at home to successfully continue their studies and maintain their relationships with teachers and friends.

Robin Hoyt, co-founder of the Team Campbell Foundation, noted that THE MAX Challenge has been instrumental in motivating her to maintain a healthy lifestyle.  “We are working out for those that cannot and spreading the word that childhood cancer affects not only the child, but the families and communities they touch.” The MAX Challenge is a ten-week body renewal system designed to help members make fast and lasting changes to their health, appearance, and fitness levels.  Their company mission statement is to help people live longer, happier, healthier more fulfilled lives.  They do this by combining nutrition counseling, fitness classes, and motivation. THE MAX Challenge of Basking Ridge is located at 411 King George Road .

The Team Campbell Foundation was formed in late 2014 in memory of Campbell Hoyt, who courageously battled Anaplastic Ependymoma, a rare cancer of the brain and spine, for five years before passing away in August of 2014 at the age of eight.  The mission of the foundation is to improve the lives of families facing a childhood cancer diagnosis through raising awareness, funding research and providing psycho-social enrichment opportunities.
