Chris Schaefer

Did we mention he likes sports?

Chris previously worked in development in the athletics departments for Old Dominion University and then University of Richmond.

“I believe in the power of escape,” he says. “Working in athletics for over a decade, I saw how sports allow people to forget about the stressful things happening in their lives. If we can do that for kids and families fighting pediatric cancer, even for a second, we’ve done them an incredible service.”

Chris graduated from NC State and then received his Master’s from Old Dominion. Now, he’s full-speed ahead leading our development team to engage sponsors and donors all over the country.

Even though some (ahem, his wife) might say he’s a little too competitive, it makes him a great fit for helping us grow our mission!
