Josie Greenwood is a sweet little girl who died of Leukemia in 2007 at the age of three. JosiesHope.org is this website, created and maintained by her family, as a multi-purpose gathering place for sharing Josie’s story, creating awareness about childhood cancer, and raising funds in the fight against cancer.
Josie’s Hope is an unofficial fundraising organization started by Josie’s family in Grand Forks, North Dakota. We are currently raising funds for The American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life 2017. Team Josie originated with the 2008 Relay For Life event in Grand Forks, North Dakota, and we continue to celebrate and participate in this wonderful annual event.

“Each year, Vintage Guitar sponsors Team Josie in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life, in memory of my grandniece and the daughter of VG webmaster Joe Greenwood, who lost her battle with leukemia in ’07 at the age of 3. On June 2, Team Josie will participate in its tenth Relay for Life in Grand Forks, North Dakota.
“The majority of the money is generated each year via a raffle for ‘Josie’ gear offered by our generous advertisers. This is an important charity for us and, to date it has raised more than $97,000. Every penny we raise goes to the charity.
