Childhood cancer: Two words that should not be linked together. Yet, on average, 43 children a day are diagnosed with cancer in the U.S., and cancer remains the #1 cause of death by disease in children less than age 19.
The 19th annual Chester County Turkey Trot, a VIRTUAL 5K Run and Walk this year, hosted by the Downingtown West Cross Country team, is one of the largest of its kind in Chester County, historically registering about 3000 participants. Since a partnership formed between the team and the Cure4Cam Childhood Cancer Foundation in 2012 after the death of fellow runner, 14-year-old Cameron Evans, from leukemia, sponsorships for the Chester County Turkey Trot have benefitted Cure4Cam. Cure4Cam is a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to helping find less toxic, more effective treatments and cures for childhood cancers. 100% of funds donated to Cure4Cam goes to fund childhood cancer projects all over the country. We are reaching out to you today as we continue to work together to raise much-needed funds to support promising childhood cancer research.
With most of Cure4Cam’s in-person fundraising events cancelled for the year due to concerns about coronavirus, our fundraising efforts are even more important. Research projects that typically rely upon small organizations rather than the federal government for funding have taken a hit due to closure and loss of resources. But children with a cancer diagnosis cannot wait. The research needs to keep moving forward to find better, less toxic treatments and cures for these diseases. And we can help. Together.
Although we are keeping costs to a minimum this year due to circumstances, we are still asking you to be as generous as you can. This is a “no registration fee” event and we are relying upon generous donors such as you to sponsor and fundraise to meet our goal. All donations of $250 and above will be acknowledged on Cure4Cam and Turkey Trot websites and social media.
