Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month

In the U.S., 15,780 children under the age of 21 are diagnosed with cancer every year; approximately 1/4 of them will not survive the disease.

Join the Fighting Children’s Cancer Foundation to be BOLD and be GOLD in the month of September.

Here are 10 Ways to Get Involved: 

  1. Join the Jersey Shore Golf Challenge!  A day filled with golf and great people, you can play, sponsor, or donate to this event!  Or, if you do not golf, join us for dinner and stay for the Dueling Pianos portion of the evening!  Click Here for More Information!

  2. Adopt a Pig!   We have ceramic piggy banks that have been painted by kids who have battled cancer.  Adopt a painted pig and see how much it can raise!  All funds go to help more kids who are fighting!  Adopt a Pig!  

  3. Create Your Own Fundraiser!  Sell lemonade with your kids, bake cookies to bring to one of your kid’s fall sporting events, or go on a loose change mission in your house, car, or laundry ~ donate the funds to help a child fighting cancer!
