Schools vs Cancer
EVENT DATE: Sep 15, 2019
Beating cancer in our community is a team effort. The Schools vs Cancer program allows kids of all ages to join forces with the American Cancer Society to help us gain the advantage against cancer! The program – led entirely by teacher and parent volunteers – includes activities and educational materials that teach children and their families how to make healthy choices about nutrition, physical activity, sun safety, and tobacco prevention. Kids are encouraged to create their own unique fundraisers to support a cause that touches everyone. Every dollar raised helps the American Cancer Society fund breakthrough cancer research, free rides to chemo, free places to stay near hospitals, and a live 24/7 helpline for answers and support. Participating in Schools vs Cancer is a great opportunity to build school spirit and establish closer relationships among teachers, students, and parents!
