SCORE FOR A CURE

GROUP OVERVIEW

Dear Family and Friends, 

We are participating in a fundraising event... SCORE FOR A CURE, to raise money in the fight against childhood cancer. This event, inspired by a local boy of the same age, has inspired our group of good cookies to be active donors in the hopes that no child should suffer from pediatric cancer. Our kids believe that every child should be able to run, jump, and play like they do everyday!!

It is with this goal in mind that SCORE FOR A CURE was conceived. During the month of May, each participant has chosen a specific goal. If you are able to donate,  $10, $5, or even $1. Each time a kid gets a goal your donation will increase 1x. We will notify you at the end of the month on the total GOALS achieved. It is our hope that each time the boys SCORE on the field, a donation will be made toward pediatric cancer treatments. This event is kid-conceived and kid-driven. Kids are helping kids the best way they know how!!

Cookies for Kids' Cancer, a national 501(c)3 non-profit, is committed to raising funds for research to develop new, improved treatments for pediatric cancer, the #1 disease killer of children in the U.S.

  • Cancer is the number one cause of death by disease of children in the U.S.
  • Less than 4% of the National Cancer Institute's budget goes to all childhood cancers combined.
  • Two-thirds of pediatric cancer patients will develop long-term side effects, many life-threatening -- a result of the treatments that "cured" them.
  • Only four of the 12 most common types of childhood cancers have average survival rates over 80%.
  • 13,500 children in the U.S. are diagnosed with cancer each year.
  • There is ONE THING that can truly change the facts of childhood cancers forever -- FUNDING for research to find new, improved therapies.

Help us show these great kids they can make a difference, thank you very much for your generous donations.

Thank you!!
