THE STORY:

The Press On Fund is a field of interest fund under the Community Foundation for the Central Savannah River Area. Press On’s Unique Mission is to IDENTIFY feasible and ground breaking alternative therapies for childhood cancers and to INVEST monies raised in a manner that supports the science and infrastructure needed to cure childhood cancer within our lifetime.

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and we're turning Awareness into ACTION with #PlayItForward!

Taking the #PlayItForward Challenge is as easy as 1-2-3:
1.PLAY! Devote today’s play to all the children affected by pediatric cancer. Build a Lego masterpiece, dedicate your soccer game, play a song, do some cartwheels in your backyard!

2.DONATE! Donate $5 to Press On’s #PlayItForward Campaign.  (Yep, hit that orange DONATE button to your right.  When it takes you to the next page, IGNORE all of those buttons for BIG $$$ unless you are called to accelerate this whole process which we would love, and type in the minimum donation of $5.)

3.CHALLENGE! Challenge 3 friends to join the cause, and share a photo or video of you playing it forward! Tell us why you #PlayforPressOn for a chance to be featured on our social media. Let us know on the Press On Facebook page!

How far can we #PlayItForward? You tell us! There is an annual $30 million gap in the funding of pediatric cancer research: Our goal of $300 million will cover 10 years of that gap! 

Want to start your own thread? We'll make it easy for you: Copy and paste the language below, fill in the blanks, and post with your photo or video to your choice of social media!

I'm taking the #PlayItForward Challenge! September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. A child is diagnosed with cancer every TWO MINUTES, but pediatric cancer research remains grossly underfunded, receiving only 4% of the NIH annual budget. The Press On Fund invests in childhoodcancer research protocols all around the country, and 100% of money raised by Press On is earmarked for research.

The challenge is simple:

1. PLAY! Have some fun today and dedicate your play to kids affected by pediatric cancer. Take a hike, hug your dog, make s'mores with your friends! 
2. DONATE! Donate just $5 (or whatever you can!) to the campaign! https://www.crowdrise.com/play-it-forward-5-challenge1 or Venmo @playitforward 
3. CHALLENGE! Share your story with a picture or video on social media and nominate three friends to #PlayItForward!
