CureSearch for Children’s Cancer
We volunteered at the CureSearch Walk for Children’s Cancer in Boston, Massachusetts at the Franklin Park Zoo. Our responsibilities included setting up course markers, processing registrations, and cheering on all the walkers.
More about CureSearch for Children’s Cancer (from their website):
CureSearch for Children’s Cancer is a national non-profit foundation that accelerates the cure for children’s cancer by driving innovation, eliminating research barriers and solving the field’s most challenging problems. We fight every day to make treatment possible and a cure probable for the 42 children diagnosed with cancer daily. We do this in three ways:
We accelerate the cure for children at greatest risk of losing their battle with cancer by posing essential challenges to scientists and inviting teams to overcome them with novel research approaches.
We support children’s enrollment in clinical trials that have the potential to save their lives today.
We provide resources and education, so no child faces a cancer diagnosis without a fully equipped support team behind them.
Ultimately, CureSearch is working to change the odds for those children most at risk.
