THE STORY:

#TeamSam (@teamsamheughan) and The Southern Sassenachs (@SSassenachs) have joined together for a Virtual #GoGold Walk on September 23 thru 25 for World Child Cancer USA, in honor of Caitriona Balfe, lead actress of Outlander. World Child Cancer's mission is to improve cancer diagnosis, treatment and care for children across the developing world. It is our hope to raise awareness and funds for this incredible organization, by sponsoring this walk. A Virtual Walk means that you can participate with us anywhere at anytime on our designated days. Get a group together and walk in your neighborhood, walk on a treadmill at the gym; whatever works for you. We do ask that those who wish to participate leave a donation of $10.00 or more. Wear your Outlander-inspired T-Shirts supporting WCC or just deck yourself out in GOLD in honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Tweet us your pictures and use #OutlandersGoGold or post to our Facebook Pages.

To further support WCC USA please consider buying one of these amazing TShirts!  

World Child Cancer globally operates 9 programs with the USA operations focused on communities in Mexico. In 2015, almost 4,000 children were helped and 1,500 medical professionals were trained. World Child Cancer USA, based in Denver CO, is a 501©3 public charity. Learn more at www.worldchildcancer.us World Child Cancer USA is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization and a Gold Level Charity on Guidestar. Questions? Email us at info@worldchildcancer.us

About Kim Hickey of #TeamSam (@teamsamheughan & @flutist_kim) : I would like to add that, as much as I love the show Outlander, and as much as I admire Caitriona (who is truly an amazing person and far more than a pretty face, I assure you, please familiarize yourself with her!), I do have a very personal connection to this cause besides simple star-struck idol-worship. You see, I was born with a lot of birth defects and health problems. I spent the first several weeks of my life at Touro Infirmary in the NICU, and the first fifteen or so years of my life I was a frequent visitor at Children's Hospital and Medical Clinic. Through all of this, since I was born, I was lucky to have the amazing medical care of Touro Infirmary Children's Hospital, Tulane Medical Center, and all the doctors associated therein; plus the doctors I have seen since as an adult. I can't imagine what my life would have been like had I not gotten the care that I did. Nor can I imagine the lives of children who have cancer not getting treatments or palliative care. Yes, my life has been a challenge, but I am grateful for where I was born and the fact that I did receive the care I needed and can continue to do so.

 

About The Southern Sassenachs: We are an avid Outlander fan base dedicated to raising awareness and funds for Cancer Research. Through T-Shirt sales, Raffles, an Online Outlander-themed Auction, a Charity Event Weekend, and numerous other avenues, The Southern Sassenachs strive to make an impact and do as much as possible towards reaching the ultimate goal-- Finding A Cure For Cancer!! The Chair, Dr. Melissa Pflueger, PhD, MT is also a World Child Cancer USA Ambassador. "I'm incredibly excited and honored to be an Ambassador. It's a very small way for me to help raise awareness and educate those who aren't familiar with childhood cancer. I ultimately hope we can find a cure, but more importantly help those children currently undergoing treatment." Board Members for The Southern Sassenachs include- Victoria Patterson, Vice President; Sarah DeArdo, Treasurer; Jennifer Pittman and Jan Hendler.  Committee Members for The Southern Sassenachs include- Jodi Moore, Julie Walters, and Amber Fields.  Please join us on our Facebook Page.
