Time to Fly 2017

We Are United

raise. walk. cure.

We're raising funds for childhood cancer research by participating in an event called Time to Fly, and we need your support!

On September 9, the We Are United team - comprised of our family, friends, neighbors and co-workers from UnitedHealth Group and Children's Hospital - will be representing and proudly supporting the efforts of Children's Cancer Research Fund at the Time to Fly event at Phalen Park.  It is always an awesome time and a great event to witness and take part of.

Here is why we are doing it.....and why you should join us:

  • Did you know only 4 percent of federal cancer funding dollars go to childhood cancer research? That’s not a lot considering 42 children are still diagnosed with cancer every day in the U.S. Not to mention that some chemotherapies for childhood cancers are 40-50 years old.
  • Childhood cancer survival rates have risen dramatically since the early 1900s, but some childhood cancers still have dismal outcomes. Current treatments can even cause secondary cancers.
  • Research advances are critical for survival, and we need your support now so that safer treatments and a cure can be created. For every $1 given to Children’s Cancer Research Fund, researchers can secure an extra $18 in government grants and other funding.
  • It's a super fun event and a great opportunity to spend time with a great group of people while supporting an important cause!

So here is what we would love to have you do - join our team (click on link to the right), start your own fundraising efforts and come walk or run with us on September 9 (kids' fun run, 5K run or walk, 10K run....whatever you want) OR if that isn't your style, then any support you give will help - it all adds up.

Thank you for supporting life-saving research happening at the University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital and the families and children who battle cancer daily.
