We are planning a childhood cancer walk-run and fundraiser for Saturday, February 9th in Angleton, TX at the recreation center. In 2008, we will not only be raising money to give to Texas Children's for research, but hopefully, we will raise enough to be able to start some of our services( catered meals, gift baskets, groceries) to critical care cancer kids and their families at Arkansas Children's Hospital. Although the Walk will be held in TX, we will be asking for sponsorships and school participation from Arkansas as well. Hopefully in 2009, we will be able to have a Walk in AR, too.
Not only can you come run or walk in the 1 mile or 5k race, but we are also giving a "Fight Childhood Cancer" trophy to the school that collects the most donations for Cancer Kids, and a new pair of running shoes to the student at each school that collects the most donations.
We are also offering sponsorships to churches, corporations and organizations (Courage Sponsor - $10,000, Faith Sponsor - $7500, Believe Sponsor - $5000, Strength Sponsor - $2500, Hope Sponsor - $1000, Peace Sponsor - $500, and Love Sponsor - $250). Sponsors will not only be recognized in our newsletter and on our event t-shirts, but they will also receive a beautiful portrait of a cancer kid to display at their place of business, church or organization. If you would like more information, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
and I will e-mail you our event brochure and flyer. Also, our BIG Love DVD will be ready in November.
Whereas most cancer organizations focus on cures for adult cancers, our primary focus is childhood cancers and finding a cure! Every school day, nine children die of cancer(3000 every year)...and in the last 50 years, more children have died from cancer than US soldiers in all military actions combined. We do need your help
. And as a family, we are determined to not only love other cancer families like Brooke loved us, but to help provide the necessary funding for research...This is our vision and lifelong pursuit!
Thank you so much for your help and for partnering with us in this GREAT cause!
