Pink for Gold: Team 610 - Fundraising for Childhood Cancer Canada
Submitted By Chris MacEachern on Saturday, January 13, 2018
Almost all cancer fundraisers only fund research. Childhood Cancer Canada (CCC) funds more than just research.

Your donation and support to Childhood Cancer Canada not only goes to research and clinical trials but also funds empowering education and community programs that offer direct support to kids and families on their childhood cancer journey, such as:


-The Childhood Cancer Canada Survivor Scholarship is open to young adult cancer survivors. The Program supports post-secondary academic endeavours and recognizes the personal triumphs of students who have survived a childhood cancer journey.


-CCC also offers a TEVA Canada Survivor Scholarship (max 6 students) for childhood cancer survivors enrolled in pharmacy, medicine, or health sciences post-graduate programs of study. For more info please check out


-The emPower Pack is sent to every family in Canada whose child is newly diagnosed with cancer. They provide families with information and inspiration to cope with what comes next.


-Amazing Adventures help children with cancer feel stronger, empowered, and inspired to battle their illness. Every Amazing Adventure helps create joy and respite for children whose lives are filled with so much uncertainty, including siblings of children with cancer.


-The Benevolent Fund is given to qualifying families with much needed financial assistance to help cover the costs of their child’s funeral. Every year in Canada, 1,500 children will be diagnosed with cancer. Despite the remarkable advances in childhood cancer treatment over the last 40 years, approximately one in five children will never recover.


Thank you for helping us create more victories for kids with cancer!
