BENEFITING: World Child Cancer USA
EVENT DATE: Oct 16, 2016
September is here! In honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, I am so excited to be training for the Detroit Marathon in support of World Child Cancer USA. More than 200,000 children around the globe are diagnosed with cancer each year, and although the survival rate has exceeded 80% in high income countries, the survival rate may be less than 10% in low and middle income countries where the vast majority of these children live. World Child Cancer USA is a wonderful non-profit organization with a vision where every child with cancer around the world has equal access to the best treatment and care and whose mission is "to improve cancer diagnosis, treatment and care for children across the developing world."
Next month, October 16, 2016, is Race Day!!! I would greatly appreciate your support for this extremely important cause. Go Gold for Childhood Cancer Awareness. Thank you all so much!
