Change the life of a child living with cancer

Star Children

What We're All About

Team Awesome is the official charity athletic team for a 501(c)3 non-profit called This Star Won't Go Out. Over the past 5 years, TSWGO has given over $400,000 in grants to families of children with cancer. Team Awesome members seek to help TSWGO continue to grow and be able to provide more aid to children facing the terrible and frightening diagnosis of cancer. Team Awesome welcomes everyone who wants to make a difference-- regardless of their athletic ability.


Our Inspiration

Meet Esther, the remarkable girl behind This Star Won't Go Out's mission. She is the inspiration for John Green's novel "The Fault in Our Stars". In her 16 years, she taught us that a short life can still be a good life.
