MTH Foundation

MTH Foundation MTH Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation. The MTH Foundation was formed as a result of the untimely death of Mary Terese Hartzheim. Mary died from a rare carcinoid neuroendocrine cancer for which there is no cure.
(4)

She was sadly diagnosed two months after her marriage to Fred Herlitz and was given only a 10% chance to live for a year. Mary and Fred fought valiantly and defied the odds. Mary survived for four years.

Mission: The MTH Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation dedicated to fulfilling the life pursuits and dreams of Mary Terese Hartzheim. We will carry out this mission by funding cancer research and realted programs, by supporting the educational and athletic endeavors of young people, and by favorably affecting the lives of those less fortunate.

We want to thank everyone for a great year and a great weekend of events. This year we lost another great person. He won the golf tournament several times and was a tremendous supporter of our foundation through all of the years. MTH Foundation is just one of the many that Tom Handrick has affected positively in our community with his tremendous heart and everlasting joy. Tom, you will be greatly missed.

Below in the foreground are the years Tom’s team has won the tournament.

MTH Foundation Announcement of Closing:

​With bittersweet feelings and tremendous gratitude for our amazing supporters, the MTH Board recently decided that it was time to close the Foundation in October, 2018. The August 3rd and 4th, 2018, Golf Tournament and Mary Mile/5K Run will be our final fundraising events.
​The last 10 years have been a humbling and rewarding experience for all of us at the Foundation as we witnessed the incredible generosity of our families, friends and strangers. We set out to honor the memory of our sister, wife, aunt, and friend, Mary Terese Hartzheim, and we believe we've accomplished our goal. During it's existence, the MTH Foundation raised over $334,000. We've funded more than $165,000 in cancer research projects; more than $78,000 in scholarships at Lakeland Union High School, and more than $80,000 in cancer care programs in the greater Minocqua, WI community and beyond.
​ While the Foundation will be discontinued, the legacy of Mary Terese Hartzheim will live on through the caring community we've created. Mary touched each of us in a unique way and she remains in all of our hearts.

With thanks and love,
MTH Board of Directors
Fred Herlitz, Abby Psyhogeos, Suzy Derby, Ann Hunt, Braden Hartzheim, Colleen Upham
