Christian, Landon, and I will be participating in an event called Time to Fly which helps raise money for the Children's Cancer Research Func. We are on my friend Melissa's crew so we are all doing a little bit of fundraising. For those of you that don't know Melissa she is a childhood cancer survior and had devoted a lot of time helping the Children's Cancer Research Fund raise money to end childhood cancer!
Please don't feel pressured to donate but if you would like to donante to support us in this run (or possibly more of a fast walk for myself;-)) please use this to do.
Thank you in advance and wish us luck!
Let’s Raise. Walk. Cure.
I’m raising funds for childhood cancer research by participating in an event called Time to Fly, and I need your support.
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 I 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.
Whatever you can 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.
