Never forget - 36 is the number of kids diagnosed with cancer each day in the US. And now with Cookies for Kids' Cancer, #36aday is a campaign that will get you moving while also raising money for research. What does "get moving" mean?
Truth: it doesn’t matter what you do, just get moving to honor the 36 children being diagnosed with cancer every single day.
In a word: fundraising. Through Cookies for Kids’ Cancer’s #36aday campaign, you can be a part of a national campaign of people who are on the move to make a difference for kids battling cancer. Register to join the overall campaign, start your own personal fundraising page, and then inspire your friends, family, neighbors or colleagues to donate in support of your efforts and in honor of kids. What are the next steps?
Inspired by a family friend's battle with pediatric cancer, high school student Abbey Rogers decided to host a 5K and bake sale fundraiser for her school project in 2012. This project has now turned into an annual community-wide event that raised $35,000 in its first two years alone. Abbey continues to inspire friends, family and groups around Charlotte to join the fight against pediatric cancer. Her 3rd annual event was just held in April 2014.
In 2013, family and friends of 7-year-old Lucy Waldeisen, one of the kids who inspire us, hosted the inaugural Lucy's Light Dodgeball Tournament in Belgrade, MT. Teams in themed costumes joined the fun, and that first event raised an incredible $10,000 for childhood cancer research. The second annual event was even bigger and better, with 35 participating teams helping raise $15,000!
In May 2014, a group of 3rd and 4th grade students from Highlands Elementary in Boise, ID hosted their very first Good Cookie 5K and Bake Sale to raise funds for childhood cancer research. Organized by class mom Kristin Smith, the students raised $5,000 and even ran through the "Be A Good Cookie" finish line together!
