At Kids Cancer Care we pride ourselves on running cost-effective fundraising programs to ensure funds raised and donated goes directly towards supporting kids and families affected by cancer.
Because of the amazing support of our event participants, donors and sponsors, we were able to raise close to $20,000–$5,000 over our goal.
We’d like to introduce you to the lovely Andrea. She’s making a difference in the lives of children affected by cancer by shaving her lid for a kid, not once, but twice! Read on to find out why Andrea’s hooked on Kids Cancer Care!
Last week was a devastating week. Cancer unleashed its destructive and erratic force and took the lives of two young girls in the same day. Two families are mourning the loss of their little girls that were too young, too innocent and with too much life left to live. Cancer robbed 18-year-old Gillian O’Blenes-Kaufman of her chance to experience the world and fulfill her dreams. And it robbed nine-year-old Diamond Marshall of her chance to grow up. Our hearts break at the injustice.
Kids Cancer Care’s title motto is KIDS CAN. In large part, because of what I’ve witnessed at the high ropes course as a volunteer, I’ve become a complete devotee to this focus. These KIDS CAN climb, dance, sing, run, and jump, and I find myself constantly referring back to the organization’s motto to cajole and encourage campers to try their best.
I was nervous and proud as Bob began, allowing himself to be so incredibly vulnerable. Only a few minutes into things, when a tasteful image of Bob’s above the heart Be Brave Be Strong tattoo was displayed, the audience cheered. I had planned to look around to observe reactions but instead found myself glued to the little girl on stage, staring up at her dad with so much love and admiration.
