'Walk with a Friend'

 

APRIL 24, 2021

 

 

FRIENDS OF KIDS WITH CANCER IS ONCE AGAIN HOSTING A VIRTUAL WALK/ RUN TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF OUR PARTICIPANTS

Friends of Kids with Cancer is committed to keeping patient families, staff, volunteers and our community safe.  The members of our FOKWC Family are among the most vulnerable and compromised - cancer patients and survivors, healthcare workers, researchers and doctors who are on the front lines of this crisis. They need us now more than ever and we are working closely with our hospital partners on new ways to bring comfort to our families during this uncertain and difficult time. 

In light of everything happening we want to remain positive and upbeat! Which is why the race must go on... virtually of course ;) That's right we are encouraging our participants to get moving wherever they are. A walk around the block, a run down the street, or a stroll in the backyard whatever you can do to help kids with cancer... be kids! 

The entire planning committee and staff joins me in appreciation and thanks to our dedicated FOKWC Family members and sponsors who have registered for the Walk and have begun fundraising and growing their teams. 

T-SHIRTS ARE BACK!  (T-shirts are NOT guaranteed after April 7th. Sign up NOW to secure you order)
