Cancer is diagnosed each year in about 175,000 children ages 14 and under worldwide.This is a statistic from St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats, and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Thanks to better therapies and treatments invented at St. Jude, the childhood cancer survival rate is improving every day!
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month! Across the country, teams are rallying to show their support and raise awareness! Friday night lights have become the perfect night to show your gold. By adding gold poms, bows, face tattoos and t-shirts, teams are taking the sidelines in gold gear!
Another great way to show your support off the sidelines is by participating in a St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer! These 5K walk/runs take place across the country throughout the month of September. Grab your teammates, family members, and friends and sign up to support a great cause!
