It's Time to Fly!
This summer, I will be participating in an event called Time to Fly benefiting Children's Cancer Research Fund at Harriet Island Regional Park in St. Paul, Minnesota.
Children's Cancer Research Fund supports cutting-edge research in pediatric cancer and has raised more than $100 million to help kids with cancer over the past 28 years.
I want to help raise money for this cause so that kids with cancer can be cured from their disease and lead healthy, normal lives.
I hope you will join me in my race aginst childhood cancer by supporting me with a pledge or joining me at Time to Fly in June.
Why Should You Help?
- 13,000 kids each year are diagnosed with cancer.
- Childhood cancer is the leading cause of death due to illness in United States children. More kids die from childhood cancer every year than die of asthma, cystic fibrosis, pediatric aids and diabetes combined.
- Despite dramatic increases in five-year survival rates, more than 100,000 years of life are lost to childhood cancer each year.
