The Komen Foundation was founded on a promise between two sisters, Susan Goodman Komen and Nancy Goodman Brinker. Suzy was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1978, a time when little was known about the disease and it was rarely discussed in public. Before she died at the age of 36, Suzy asked her sister to do everything possible to bring an end to the disease. Nancy kept her promise by establishing the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation in 1982, in memory of her sister.


For more than 20 years, the Komen Foundation has been a global leader in the fight against breast cancer. Working through a network of U.S. and international affiliates and events like the Race for the Cure®, the Foundation has raised more than $750 million.

Big Brothers Big Sisters is the oldest, largest and most effective youth mentoring organization in the United States.  The leader in one-to-one youth service for more than a century, developing positive relationships that have a direct and lasting impact on the lives of young people. Big Brothers Big Sisters serves children, ages 6 through 18, in communities across the country - including yours.


The Big Brothers Big Sisters Mission is to help children reach their potential through professionally supported, one-to-one relationships with measurable impact.   Erik Qualman is a founding member of Miami’s Big Brothers Big Sisters Impact Circle.

MSU Charity

Brian Norkus Memorial Scholarship Fund: Brian Norkus was a promising young man (MSU '93) who selflessly gave his life by steering his runaway car out of harms way rather than into a congested city intersection (see story below). His family setup a scholarship fund for two Northview High School Seniors. His close friends called him by the nickname of "Clown" as a result of his light hearted humor and charismatic personality. The world was a better place with him in it. Brian was a great friend of Erik Qualman's from college. | More Info

Michigan State Academic Center

Clara Bell Smith Academic Center: Michigan State basketball legend Steve Smith donated $2.5M toward this great academic facility in honor of his late great mother. It is still the largest gift ever by a professional athlete to any university. Even if you aren't a fan of MSU you need to be a fan of an unslefish athlete that loved his mother and understands the importance of academics for our youth. More Info
