THE STORY:

Join us as we march down the streets of Loma Linda, CA to the Loma Linda University Children's Hospital to raise awareness of childhood cancer. More children die of cancer than any other disease including asthma, diabetes, cystic fibrosis, congenital anomalies and AIDS COMBINED. The Kids Walk is a community awareness and fundraiser event. Families who have a child currently in oncology treatment will walk in honor of their child. Families who have lost a child to cancer will hold banners in memory of their loved one during this tribute. Survivors take this opportunity to take a victory march for conquering this disease. We take this opportunity to make the signs and symptoms of childhood cancer known to the community as we place an emphasis on early detection which is key in saving the lives of young people battling this disease.   ------------------------------------------------------------- FAQs - Do I have to be an avid runner/walker to participate?
