ZACF was founded by Zach Lederer and his parents, John and Christine Lederer.

In 2013, Zachary Lederer was studying broadcast journalism at the University of Maryland and serving as Student Manager for his school’s beloved basketball team.  He was battling cancer- for the second time in his short life. Since defeating his first brain tumor at age 11, Zach had been “Living the Dream” of inspiring others. He met one-on-one with cancer patients, spoke to large groups about the importance of positivity, and even started a worldwide movement with his signature  “Zaching” pose. Zach was just 20 years old when he passed away from brain cancer in 2014. The Zaching Against Cancer Foundation (ZACF) honors his memory by making a difference in those affected by cancer –  day in and day out. #makingadifference
